The Office of Testing and Evaluation Services provides the UW-Madison campus and the University of Wisconsin System with services related to assessment and evaluation. Our office provides scanning services, scoring and statistical analysis of exams and evaluations, and administration of local and national standardized exams. Staff within the department conduct nationally recognized research on test-related topics and have an extensive record of publications in peer-reviewed journals.


The Center for Placement Testing is administered by Testing and Evaluation Services. The Center leads committees of faculty and instructional staff from various UW System campuses in developing placement tests which are used system-wide for incoming freshmen. Staff from Testing and Evaluation conduct studies to support the development of these tests and effectively use the results to place freshman into appropriate levels in math, English and foreign language courses.
