On the actual day of the test, you will have 3 minutes to read the following text. In this placement test, try and do the same: take 3 minutes to read the following passage.

You may take note as you read.

Investigations made at laboratories in the various parts of the world indicate that apes are capable of understanding language and using linguistic responses at the level of young children. Just because these animals do not have the physical apparatus for producing the speech, we should not assume that they cannot understand and learn language. According to researchers who have worked closely with apes, when these animals are given other means to communicate, they do indeed show sophisticated communicative abilities. These researchers provide evidence of gorillas using signs to show humor, to insult, to threaten, to produce metaphorical language, and to engage in fantasy play. Koko, a lowland gorilla, seems to have understood a poem written about her. Tests of Koko's auditory comprehension showed that she was able to distinguish between words such as "funny," "money," and "bunny." Similar claims have been made for Michael, a male companion of Koko's, who also learned to discriminate between many sounds. Washoe, an adult chimpanzee raised as if she were a deaf child, was able to translate words she heard into American Sign Language. Another study consisted of teaching a chimpanzee named Kanzi how to communicate using a keyboard of symbols. This study compared the series of stages that a human child goes through with those of Kanzi. Kanzi moved through these stages in much the same way as children, up to a particular stage of development, and in fact, did better than a young child on a test that measured only the ability to comprehend given requests.
Now listen to part of a lecture on the topic you just read about.
On the actual day of the test, you will listen to it just once. So, please do so and you may take notes as you listen:

You have 20 minutes to plan and write your response. Your response will be judged based on the quality of your writing and on how well your response presents the points in the lecture and their relationship to the reading passage. Typically, an effective response will be 150 to 225 words.


Summarize the points made in the lecture you just heard, explaining how they cast doubt on the points made in the reading.

[Reading passage reappears during writing time. Refer to the full passage.]
