Placement tests are given during orientation and will determine in which level you will begin. In order to be successful in the CIEP, students should have previous study of English with at least two years in high school (secondary school) or a full year in a university within the past five years. Students entering Level 1(elementary) must be able to speak, understand, write and read simple English sentences before coming to Capital.
New students take the English Placement Test (EPT) and write a sample composition before they begin classes. The results of these tests and an oral interview determine which level in the program is the best placement.
**Occasionally, based on student need, a Basic Level (pre-Elementary) is offered. Detailed descriptions of all IEP classes can be found in the CIEP Student Handbook.
