Assessment Testing at Brentwood

About the Assessment Test Students and computers

The English, ESL and math assessment tests help you determine the appropriate English, ESL and math courses for your current learning needs. Testing (or comparable level course work already completed) is required before enrollment into English 90 and above, before enrollment into ESL courses above level I, or to enter into a math course above Math 12. In some cases high school or college coursework, or placement testing elsewhere, may be used in lieu of taking LMC's Assessment. Please check with our Admissions office for specific information.


Assessment testing is at a computer. Set aside 1 ½  - 2 hours to complete both the English & Math in one setting, or the two tests may be taken on separate days. Students taking the ESL assessment should plan on spending 1 - 2 hours to finish (time is dependent on your English language proficiency). All questions are multiple choice, and instructions are easy to follow. New students should complete assessment testing prior to attending a New Student Workshop or creating their Education Plan.


You will receive your test results and recommended placements immediately after completing the test. You cannot "fail" assessment or be denied admission to the college. The tests are a measure of your current skill level.
