Assessment services provide entrance and placement testing for a variety of programs. NVIT offers academic and educational assessments with recommendations for placement and suggestions for remedial interventions and learning strategies. In addition to the advising, counselling and academic support staff, NVIT contracts with registered psychologists and educational consultants to provide specialized services.
Some applicants to NVIT will be referred to an Academic Planner before course selection and registration to assess the applicant's mathematics, reading and/or writing skills. It is also recommended that applicants, whose prerequisites are more than five years old, write English and/or Mathematics assessments.
The tests being used are not examinations, but are designed to help students determine their appropriate placement level for admission to programs and courses with specified prerequisites.
