BEST administers placement exams in mathematics and foreign language to thousands of incoming freshmen and other undergraduates each year. We also administer the Graduate School Foreign Language Exam for French, German, and Spanish to graduate students who need to show proficiency in those languages for degree requirements.

In addition, BEST serves as a test administration site for a number of national exams, providing convenient local access to the SAT, GRE, PRAXIS, LSAT, and other widely-used admissions and certification exams.
