Welcome to the Arabic Placement Test
About the test
The test is approximately two hours and a half in length, and it is composed of three portions:
a. The writing portion is completed via Zoom and it is worth a total of 100 points.
b. The reading portion is completed online through Canvas site, and it is worth a total of 48 points.
c. Right after finishing with the reading portion, each student will have a follow-up interview with a proctor. The interviews last approximately 15 minutes and it is worth a total of 20 points.
Important: The interview portion will be weighted most heavily as it will be used to validate performance on the other portions. The final result/score/rating will thus be based on the student’s performance on the interview above all. Rating of performance on the writing or reading portions is secondary.
How is the result calculated?
Students who receive 60% or above will be placed in Arabic 401 and thus placed out of the LSA language requirement.
Where can I view my results?
Placement results are posted within 7 business days after taking the test.
You will not be notified of your score automatically. You may view your placements via: Wolverine Access > Student Business > Academic Records > View Placement Exam Results.

Important information about the test
* Please note that only students who are participating in the orientations are eligible to take the online placement test. If you are an existing UM student, please sign up to take the in-person placement test that is taking place in August.

IN-PERSON REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED. REGISTER TO ATTEND THE ZOOM WEBINAR: https://myumi.ch/N61QZ

Registration is required to attend the DISCO Summit. Due to limited space in the venue, in-person registration will close once we reach our maximum capacity for each panel.
Event Description:


The DISCO Summit is a two-day interdisciplinary summer symposium about digital social inequalities in celebration of the third year of the DISCO Network. The DISCO Summit will include nine panel conversations about the past, present, and future of the intersection between digital technology, culture, race, disability, gender, sexuality, and liberation.

The DISCO Network is a collaborative, intergenerational group of scholars dedicated to envisioning a new anti-racist and anti-ableist digital future. The network comprises six labs across five universities: the Michigan Hub at the University of Michigan Digital Studies Institute (PI: Lisa Nakamura, University of Michigan), HAT Lab (PI: Rayvon Fouché; Northwestern University), DAF Lab (PI: M. Remi Yergeau, University of Michigan), Future Histories Studio (PI: Stephanie Dinkins, Stony Brook University), PREACH Lab (PI: André Brock, Georgia Institute of Technology), and BCaT Lab (PI: Catherine Knight Steele, University of Maryland-College Park). The DISCO Network is supported by the Mellon Foundation.

This event is free and open to the public. The DISCO Summit provides a platform for scholars, students, artists, practitioners, activists, and community members to convene and engage in dialogue about racial inequality, histories of exclusion, disability justice, techno-ableism, and digital racial politics within the academy, the technology industry, and beyond. We especially welcome individuals whose interests lie in the intersection of the digital and identity and have found difficulties pursuing their endeavors at their home institutions.

The "Engaged Mentoring" series is for faculty mentors of research trainees at any stage of training. This program is an evidence-based, interactive approach designed to elevate mentoring skills for engaging in productive, culturally responsive research mentoring relationships. The program aims to accelerate the process of becoming an effective research mentor by providing mentors with an intellectual framework, an opportunity to experiment with various methods, and a forum in which to solve mentoring dilemmas with the help of their peers. By the end of the program, mentors will have articulated their style and philosophy of mentoring and have a toolbox of strategies for approaching difficult mentoring situations. These skills will support the success of both mentors and mentees, and it is responsive to the NIGMS guidelines regarding the preparation of mentors involved in training grants.


The OGPS Engaged Mentoring Series, focuses on the five themes below (all within the context of fostering diversity, equity, and inclusion). To learn more about the five themes, visit our Canvas Site:

1. Establishing Effective Mentoring/Mentee Relationships

2. Aligning Expectations Using Mentoring Plans

3. Managing Mental Health in the Mentoring Relationship

4. Approaching Difficult Conversations

5. Managing Tension and Conflict

The 5 themes are presented in two different formats:
Option A: Two half-day Workshop series. Each session is 4hrs, and you must attend both sessions in order to receive a certificate of completion from OGPS.
Option B: 1-day Retreat. The session is 8hrs, and you must attend the entire session to receive a certificate of completion from OGPS.

The Michigan Engineering community is invited to attend the fifth annual EECS Juneteenth Celebration on Wednesday, June 19, from 11:00 a.m. - 1:30 p.m. The theme of this year's event is Celebrating Excellence in People-First Engineering and Computing.
The program will include:
- Live performance of "Lift Every Voice and Sing" by Amber Roberts (U-M School of Music), first prize winner of the 2024 George Shirley Voice Competition
- Abridged reading of the Emancipation Proclamation
- Presentation by Shawn Blanton, Joseph F. and Nancy Keithley Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) Department at Carnegie Mellon University
- Presentation by James Mickens, Professor, Computer Science, Harvard School of Engineering & Applied Sciences
- Remarks by EECS department chairs
At the conclusion of the program, lunch will be available outside in the Gerstacker Grove. The EECS department has partnered with two black-owned businesses, Good Eats and Motor City Sweet Treats, to offer food truck lunches.
As a university, recognizing Juneteenth involves acknowledging the significance of this date in American history. Juneteenth, which is celebrated on June 19th, marks the day in 1865 when Union soldiers arrived in Galveston, Texas, and announced the end of the Civil War, ensuring the freedom of all slaves. This was two and a half years after President Abraham Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation had formally freed slaves in the Confederate states. Juneteenth thus celebrates the end of slavery in the United States and is a day for education and reflection on the history of slavery and the ongoing struggle for racial justice.

Engendering Respectful Communities (ERC) is a one session workshop that engages graduate students in meaningful dialogue about various forms of sexual misconduct they may encounter in both professional and social spaces, and provides resources for intervention or support in such circumstances.


The primary goal of the workshop is to address complexities experienced by graduate students as they engage in bystander intervention, so that participants gain an increase in awareness of barriers to action and familiarity with strategic planning to overcome them. The workshop also introduces participants to on-campus resources and provides knowledge on how sexual misconduct can unfold in graduate-specific settings.

The ERC workshop uses small-group circles intended to promote active reflection and space to build community. The procedure of circles is introduced at the beginning of the workshop in order to help participants get used to the process, which they do through a circle for introductions and value-sharing for the workshop space. These circles depict various, realistic scenarios related to sexual misconduct within the graduate community. The circle process allows circle members to process the monologues, reflect on complexities with identity and power dynamics within them, name potential barriers to intervention, and think of various ways in which they might respond if faced with similar situations. The circles provide a way to foster collective building of ideas, where participants learn from one another and all input is equally valued. Participants are encouraged to share but can always pass if desired, creating an environment where participation is open but not forced.

Bring your questions, as there will be plenty of time for questions and answers. This event is intended to be interactive and therefore a recording will not be available.
16 sessions available from August 20, 2024 to August 30, 2024

Welcome to the Arabic Placement Test
About the test
The test is approximately two hours and a half in length, and it is composed of three portions:
a. The writing portion is completed on paper and it is worth a total of 100 points.
b. The reading portion is completed on Canvas site, and it is worth a total of 48 points.
c. Right after finishing with the reading portion, each student will have a follow-up interview with a proctor. The interviews last approximately 15 minutes and it is worth a total of 20 points.
Important:
a. The interview portion will be weighted most heavily as it will be used to validate performance on the other portions. The final result/score/rating will thus be based on the student’s performance on the interview above all. Rating of performance on the writing or reading portions is secondary.
b. Students who receive 60% or above will be placed in Arabic 401 and thus placed out of the language requirement.
c. Students who are not able to write in Modern Standard Arabic (MSA) do not need to take the placement test and they will be advised to enroll in Arabic 101.
Where can I view my results?
a. Placement results are posted within 7 business days after the test.
b. You will not be notified of your score automatically. You may view your placements via: Wolverine Access > Student Business > Academic Records > View Placement Exam Results.
Important information about the test
* Placements are valid for only one year. If you fail to register in the course that you are placed in, you will be required to retake the test.
* Retaking the placement test is only permitted after the placement results expire.
* The test assesses students’ proficiency in Modern Standard Arabic (MSA), NOT colloquial Arabic.
* If you speak an Arabic dialect but you do not know how to read or write or have little knowledge, feel free to register in Arabic 101.
* Students who know some Arabic because they came from an Arabic-speaking household or have studied Arabic before, must take the Arabic proficiency test in order to determine their placement.
* Students who have taken Arabic at other institutions and wish to continue their Arabic study at UM must take the placement test to determine their level. Credits for Arabic study undertaken at another institution prior to joining UM or in a summer program while attending UM, transfer in as generic departmental credits and students must take the placement test to determine credit equivalencies to UM courses.
* If you place in or beyond the 401 level, you will have satisfied the LSA language requirement.
* Students are encouraged to take a placement test as early as possible in their studies in order to determine the level they should enroll in, or if they test out of the language requirement. This is extremely important to avoid delays in graduation and complications with placement.
* Arabic 101, 201, 401, 501 are offered ONLY in the Fall semester, and Arabic 102, 202, 402, 504, 511 are ONLY offered in the Winter semester.
* Arabic 203 (the equivalent of Arabic 201 & 202, combined) is offered in the Spring/Summer sessions.
If you have questions regarding the placement test, please contact the program director at, mesarabicprogram@umich.edu.
