Approaches to Placement

At least five fundamentally-different approaches:

  1. Placement tests

  2. Placement based on SAT, ACT, or similar aptitude tests

  3. Placement by faculty

  4. Use of an expert system

  5. Use of a neural network

Each approach has some advantages, but each approach also has drawbacks.
