Placement Testing

It is strongly recommended that all students entering college for the first time (or after a 3-year absence) take a placement test prior to registration. Placement testing is part of the Matriculation process mandated by the California Community College Chancellor's Office and is one measure of the "Multiple-Measure" criteria academic counselors will utilize to determine appropriate course placement and plan coursework.

Placement tests are designed to match you with a course that you are prepared to succeed in based on your current skill levels. The assessment test measures your skill level in three areas:

  • Reading Comprehension
  • Sentence Skills
  • Arithmetic, Elementary Algebra, or College Level Math
