Placement Tests

In this section, you will find placement tests to help you find which level of Straightforward your students should be using.

Each test has 50 questions, with one point available for each correct answer. Levels are then determined by the number of points your students score.

The first test on this page is a general level test for Straightforward, and includes questions linked to the grammar from the Student’s Books. There are also more detailed tests for Beginner/Elementary, Pre-Intermediate/Intermediate¬†and Upper Intermediate/Advanced-level students, to help you determine which level will best suit your class.

These have been updated and expanded but will be suitable for both the original and the second edition of Straightforward.

Clicking on each test below will open a .zip file with both the tests and the answers. These placement tests are Word documents, so you can download them and then edit the questions to suit your students’ language learning requirements if necessary.
