Abstract

One project in Thailand in which self-access has been implemented recently is Student English Access Rooms (SEARs), which is funded by the World Bank. The aim is to promote English development and improvement through self-access learning. To serve the aim, a placement test is needed as supportive guidance on where to start using the materials. This paper investigates whether a computer-based placement test, which was specially designed for use in SEARs, is an appropriate test and whether the levels of the materials suggested are appropriate for students’ language levels.
