The purpose of this note is to investigate when a placement test should be implemented and possibility to pick industrious students up at their entry. Using TOEIC score data collected in a Japanese national university, we estimate occasion when the students' score raise up and test difference of the score. We found two results in the following. First, scores of the industrious students raise up between in their freshman and sophomore dramatically. Ones between in their sophomore and junior raise up less than that of their youth. Second, at the students' entry, we cannot separate the industrious students. We conclude that solutions to improve students' English proficiency in their sophomore and upper should be considered.
