Do any of you instructors allow/require placement testing?
If you do, what are your guidelines, tests you give, questions you ask?

Just thinking of back in college, I was allowed to test out of an intro to drafting class, but, wasn't allowed to take the test for intro to cad (because I had never used r14... nevermind that I'd used 13, whatever and I STILL haven't touched 14... sorry, I digress)...

A couple of my instructors would do sort of skills assessment tests at the beginning of their classes to get a feel for where people were.

Anyone else? I'd like to hear more on this topic.
