Modern Hebrew Placement Test

Updated February 2023
The Modern Hebrew placement assessment process consists of three parts: 
1) A short survey (in English) that would help us determine which of the assessments a student should take. The survey is available now. Please allow a few days to hear back from us. 
2) An online assessment based on the recommendations given to the students. 

To join the Hebrew Placement site go to Hebrew Placement Exam 2023 course site in Canvas.  Once you are on that site, there is a button on the right where you can “Enroll in Course”.  Please click that button and you will enroll in the “Hebrew Placement course.”

Taking the assessment:

In the Hebrew Placement site, go to Quizzes (on the left menu). Choose the test you wish to take. 1, 2, 3, or 4. 

3) A short Zoom interview:  As part of this process, we’ll be in touch to set up time for a short individual meeting over zoom. In this meeting we plan to discuss your Hebrew goals and talk about courses that would best suit your current level. 
** If you missed this window and still wish to take the placement, please email Dr. Shiri Goren, Director of the Hebrew Program, at  

Before taking the placement test, please read Yale College’s policy on academic honesty.
