Abstract
Assessing students is a key part of teaching a language. Placement tests are used to help teachers set up learner groups that can work together, and to inform decisions ranging from choosing the most suitable course book to devising the teaching content to suit a particular group of students. The article explores what functions a placement test must fulfill, what essential qualities a valid, reliable and practical test must have - and how these qualities can be ensured.
