There are four types of language tests, depending on the purpose of the test:

Tests of learning ability (e.g., tests of study habits and methods)
Achievement tests (eg term exams)
Proficiency Tests (e.g. HSK and YCT)
Diagnostic tests (e.g., stage level tests)

After enrollment, SNE will conduct a simple diagnostic test for each student who is learning Chinese from a non-zero starting point. According to the test results, the students will be assigned to the most appropriate class for learning.
