WebCAPE Language Placement Exam

The WebCAPE (Computer Adaptive Placement Exams) tests are designed to measure a student's current skill level in French, German, and/or Spanish for placement consideration. These tests are multiple-choice and evaluate grammar, vocabulary, and reading comprehension. There are no listening or speaking components to these tests.

Appointment Times

WebCAPE tests are offered 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday by appointment only. Call 479-788-7675 or email to schedule a time.

Test Preparation

This is a ONE-TIME-ONLY test. Students should study before taking the test. While there are no official study guides available, students are encouraged to review textbooks from previous studies.


There is no charge for WebCAPE tests.


A current driver’s license, passport, or Lions ID card is required.

Time Limit

There is no time limit. Most students finish within 10 to 30 minutes and receive scores immediately upon completion of the test.

UAFS Policy

WebCAPE tests are used for placement purposes only. You do not earn credits merely by taking a WebCAPE test. If you wish to earn credits without taking a foreign language class, you should consider taking the CLEP exam instead.
