Abstract

Since the early 1980's, the present English-As-a-Second- Language Placement Test (ESLPT), a post-admissions test, has been used to determine whether an incoming international student (either graduate or undergraduate) needs more work in English to meet ISU standards (these students begin academic work whether or not. they pass the ESLPT). Students whose native language is not English are required to take the ESLPT except for those who taken it as an undergraduate. Hence, most of them take the test a few days before their first semester at the university.
