The French Language examination consists of 120 multiple-choice items presented in three sections during a 90-minute timeframe. Each section is timed separately.
Students must demonstrate their ability to comprehend written and spoken French by answering a variety of questions covering these topics:
- listening comprehension through short oral exchange
- listening comprehension through longer spoken selections
Computer-based Scoring: CLEP computer-based (CBT) exams are scored without a penalty for incorrect guessing. The raw score--the number of correct responses--is translated into a scaled score. The scaled scores for CLEP CBT are reported in a range from 20 to 80.
