概要 This paper treats a placement test used to divide students who want to take English into level-appropriate classes. The test was administered to 467 students from three departments at a Japanese college. Language growth and development happens when students are in the most appropriate class for their current proficiency level. Since clusters of identical scores make it difficult to divide students into the appro- priate groups, the weighting of questions was revised to ensure less score clustering. Favorable and time-saving results were obtained, which benefited students, teachers, and administrators.
