Stonehill has three types of placement exams for incoming students that you may need to take before you come to Orientation in June. All three tests are easily accessible from myHill, the Stonehill College Portal, by browsing to myhill.stonehill.edu.
For step-by-step instructions to access the exams, please see the directions below. The tests will be available beginning May 8.
All placement exams are due on June 2.
Students who have taken German, French, Italian or Spanish in high school must take a Foreign Language Exam in each of the languages they studied—even if you plan to study a different language at Stonehill. Click on the language(s) you studied, type in your test password (skyhawks1) if requested, enter your name and Stonehill ID number, and start answering your questions. Try your best but do not guess unless you have some idea of the correct answer. When you are done with the exam, you may get an approximate placement score. Your final language placement level will be determined by considering the grades you earned in the high school language course(s), the number of years you studied the language and your score on the placement exam.
Calculus Placement Assessment
Students who plan to take a calculus course (i.e., computer science, economics, mathematics and science majors) must take the Calculus Placement Assessment to assist in placing you in the appropriate mathematics course.
Chemistry Math Skills Assessment
Students who plan to take General Chemistry I at Stonehill (i.e., astronomy, biochemistry, biology, chemistry, earth and planetary science, engineering, environmental sciences, health science, neuroscience, physics and undeclared science majors) must take the Chemistry Math Skills Assessment in order to determine if you would benefit from additional support in chemistry-applied math.
Business Administration Math Skills Assessment
Students who plan to declare any business administration major [i.e., accounting, finance, international business, management (general or management information systems), marketing and undeclared business], must take the Business Administration Math Skills Assessment in order to determine which math course you should take as part of your business major.
ALL INCOMING STUDENTS ARE REQUIRED TO COMPLETE THE GUIDED SELF-PLACEMENT FOR WRITING
Go to the Writing Placement link and follow the directions carefully to complete your sample essay and writing assessment survey. We will use the results to guide you to the appropriate First-Year Writing Seminar Level. All placement levels fulfill the First-Year Seminar Requirement at Stonehill.
