Notice: Beginning in Spring 2022, this exam is available both in-person at the University Testing Center and via remote proctoring. Remote proctoring is a one-on-one service and has a higher associated testing cost. To find out more information regarding remote testing for the Hebrew Proficiency Exam, please visit the Hebrew Remote testing page here.
The Hebrew Proficiency Exam allows test takers to fulfill the foreign language competency requirement by passing a foreign language exam.
Test takers are allowed 1 hour to complete the 50 multiple-choice questions.
There are no test preparation materials available. The most successful way to prepare for any given test is to review your reading ability. It is also helpful if you have a friend to practice both listening and speaking of the language.
The office of Student Accessibility Services (SAS) works in collaboration with the University Testing Center (UTC) to ensure that reasonable accommodations are made for students with documented disabilities. Students with disabilities seeking accommodations for placement tests must have approval from the SAS office (407-823-2371 or firstname.lastname@example.org). Note: test-takers should allow at least two (2) weeks for SAS and UTC to process the accommodation request once the formal request has been submitted to SAS.
Once UTC receives notification from the SAS office of a test-taker’s testing accommodations, a UTC staff member will notify the student via email.
Note: Test-takers seeking to test with accommodations must schedule their appointment time for Monday-Friday at 12:45 PM or earlier.
