- SNUCREPT 4 is a 200 items English placement aimed at assessing two
areas of language use (listening comprehension and reading comprehension)
and two areas of language knowledge (grammar and vocabulary).
The listening comprehension section of the test, which is administered aurally
via tape, includes 60 multiple-choice items divided into five parts.
Part I includes 10 items, each consisting of a single-sentence stem and
four single sentence options, one of which is "closest in meaning" to the
sentence in the stem. Part II includes 10 items in which the stem includes
the first part of a one-turn conversational exchange, with the appropriate
second part of the exchange given in one of the four choices. Part III
includes 10 items in which the stem includes the first turn and the first part
of the second turn of a two-turn conversational exchange with the second
half of the second turn given in one of the four choices. Part N includes 15
items that repeat this pattern, but with three- or four-turn conversations.
In Part V, there are 15 items, each consisting of a short piece of non-interactive
oral discourse, followed by a question, with the "best" answer to the
question provided in one of the four choices.
