The LAS Links K-12 Placement Test - 1st Edition covers speaking, listening, reading, and writing, and places students into one of three proficiency levels: Not Proficient, Approaching Proficiency, and Proficient. Administration of LAS Links English for students in the Approaching Proficiency range offers a clear diagnostic view of proficiency in English.

The LAS Links K-12 Placement Test - 2nd Edition provides a screening tool for qualified school personnel to administer, score and interpret the results for placement of students in appropriate English Language Learner (ELL) programs. The test is based on three dimensions of language proficiency: conversational fluency (communicative language), discrete English skills (specific aspects of English linguistic knowledge), and academic language.
