Take a Quick French Test
20 Questions, no commitments, no information to enter, free, and the score at the end will give you an estimate of your grammar level. Should take less than 15 minutes.
Personally, I got a 70, but I've been working hard on my tenses and conjunctions for a while now. Each correct answer is worth 5 points, so I did miss 6 of 20.
The downside to this site is that there are four tests that rotate, but the answers are not revealed after grading.
For more tests:
and both sites have dozens of other specific tests. These other sites will show the correct answers after grading. For an even longer test, see link below.
Follow-Up: Has anyone used this service?
It allows you to have 10 free tests. After the first assessment test, it ranks you A1 through....and after each test, it gives you a study plan on what to work on, and the notes to study. This is something I have wanted to have since I do not learn in a school setting where a teacher can gage my progress based on tests, classroom performance, etc. I've always avoided getting bogged down with verb conjugation, like Benny Lewis and the others preach, but now I have a huge vocabulary, a developing ear, and very weak grammar skills.
If you are just starting out, consider the UT Austin French Department on-line website.
Each module has a test at the end, that shows the correct answers, and can be very helpful in finding areas that need further review.
This final link has tests in many languages:
Interesting link. My placement level seemed a little high (B1)
I wonder if that is to encourage me to sign up for their paid programs.
Thanks for the link. I agree with northerguy but I'll take it as it gave me a confidence boost :)
30%, on the border of Elementary and Intermediate! Still have much to learn :)
What a surprise! I answered them with a quick scan, and get 85?? (C1) Many of them.. you can get them right if you have a strongly built grammar.. ok.. it's a confidence booster! :D
I also got B1, which is about the same as on other tests I have taken, so I would assume it is fairly accurate.
Thank you for the test, it says the same as other test so it is probably a good one. I am on end of A2 start of B1 level for French. I hope to reach B1 in 2015 :)
I still miss a lot, I did the first one :) I will try the others too, I also did a few tests from AT5 TVMonde.
I got 90%! (C1). I started out as a complete beginner 3 months ago, so it's obviously to high a rating for me - haven't even had my first conversation in french yet... But it seems like I'm on the right track grammar-wise :)
The test found on https://www.french-test.com/ is much more challenging, longer, and I feel properly designed. It's free to try, and it will show where you need to improve. I was scoring 70-85% on those quick 20 question tests and was humbled by the comprehensive test (very tricky).
The first one, as you say, doesn't give you the right answers so it isn't much help to those who need that. But the others are excellent links that actually show you where you are weak. The Open Learning (Texas) is an excellent site but I didn't know it had tests so thanks for that! DL gives me a 60% fluency in French but I really need to get way more serious because I am still missing some tenses and make the silliest spelling errors at times )-: My goal is to go to France in 2018 and be able to understand and speak with more confidence with fewer silly and embarrassing errors!
It is helpful when mentioning online resources if you give the link or the full proper name. The information you gave produces millions of results.
The most likely one is ..... COERLL | The Center for Open Educational Resources and Language...... from the University of Texas. But perhaps you meant something else.
