German language level placement with the onSET German Test
The ZEMS is a certified onSET Test Center that offers the opportunity to take the computer-generated C-test onSET Deutsch . The test lasts 40 minutes and is taken in the media library (Mediothek). An individual appointment can be arranged.
This test follows the C-test format. Test participants must complete eight cloze tests within five minutes per text. Test results provide highly accurate information regarding language proficiency on a scale from below A2 to A2, B1, B2, and C1 or higher.
The test does not aim to determine competences in the four basic language skills (reading comprehension, listening comprehension, writing, and listening) separately but rather provides combined information regarding general language proficiency based on the achieved score.
The test can be taken at any time during regular opening hours in the ZEMS Mediothek. Individual appointments must be arranged a minimum of three days in advance via e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org  or telephone Mediothek .
An administrative fee of 10 Euro must be paid before taking the test. Please bring the proof of payment to your test appointment (for further information see http://www.zems.tu-berlin.de/v-menue/sprachgutachten/zahlungsmodalitaeten ).
Additional information and an example test can be found on the Test-Homepage  .
