Testimonials That Say It All

“There’s nothing confusing about PlaceU. I also like how you can bookmark questions for later and how it shows how many questions were answered or not answered. That was very helpful!”​

PlaceU has been a great solution for our Math Placement Exams. The PlaceU interface has given our students a much better experience and we feel that students can better focus on the content of the exam and not the technical aspects of the platform. Administratively, we like the fact that we can still customize and personalize the exams to better meet the needs of our own institution.”​
