Who Should Take the Entry Placement Assessments (English and Math) ?

Assessment for entry placement in English and mathematics is expected of all first-time students, except for those students who have completed required English and mathematics skill courses. All students who plan to enroll in English and/or mathematics courses are expected to complete the assessment tests. All assessment tests include multiple measures. Students are strongly encouraged to complete the no-cost, assessment tests early in their program since the scores are used for advisory purposes during counseling sessions. Assessment results are available immediately after completing the tests. Assessed students are directed to speak with a counselor or faculty adviser to determine course placements, which are based upon multiple measures that are included on the test. Multiple assessment measures for entry placement decisions may include, but are not limited to, the following factors: assessment test results, goal definition, motivation, academic status, self-assessment or study skills. For information about the assessment process, call the Assessment Center at (714) 241-6285.
