The English, ESL and math assessments determine the appropriate English, ESL and math courses that you may sign up for, therefore it is important to be prepared! See the study guides on the sidebar. All assessments must be taken on campus, even if you are taking online classes. Assessments are only for LMC students.
Assessment tests are taken on a computer. Students should put aside 2 hours to complete both assessments. Students taking the ESL assessment should plan on spending 1 to 2 hours to finish both sections (time is dependent on your English language proficiency). All questions are multiple choice, and instructions are easy to follow. You will receive your assessment results, including recommended placements, immediately after completing the assessment.
Assessment tests measure your skill level only; you cannot fail them. Assessments may be taken only once per year. You will not be permitted to retake assessment(s) within a year just to try and improve your score. If you would like to challenge our one-year policy, please visit our exemption page.
Have you taken Algebra II in high school, been to college before, or taken placement exams elsewhere? See Alternatives to taking the Assessment.
Insufficient studying may result in placement into a lower level math and/or English class!
This will cost you extra time and money, so study before taking your assessment! See Accuplacer Study Guides
Math assessment is going through review by the math department. Math assessment testing will resume some time during the month of March.
