This is the site for the Middlebury College Chinese School Computer Adaptive Test for Reading Chinese (CATRC). You will need to have the Shockwave plugin installed on your computer. If you are uncertain whether you have this plugin or not, see:
Shockwave Download

Note: if you have a Intel-based Mac (any Mac purchased in the last year or so), you may will need to do some additional set up, see: Using Shockwave Player on an Intel-based Macintosh.  This test will NOT function on Mac OSX Lion.

This Chinese reading comprehention test is a multiple choice computer adaptive test. What this means is that the test will give you more or less difficulty questions until it finds the level which best represents your ability.

Given the adaptive nature of this test, it may take anywhere from 5 minutes to 1 1/2 hours depending on your ability to read chinese (some questions are displayed in simplified characters while others use traditional characters). There is no time limit on the test.

Once the test begins you will be required to enter your email address and your first and last name. Do not change the instructor’s email address (unless you have been notified to do so) or your test results will not be assessed.
