Placement Testing/Assessment Services

NOTE: Students are no longer required to take placement exams for their Math and English courses. The appropriate courses will be determined by your high school performance and program of choice.

Your next “Step To Success” is determining what English and Math courses to take. With the passing of California Assembly Bill 705 (AB 705), you no longer have to take a standardized test to determine your placement. Your placement will be based on your high school performance, your self-reported information, and other important multiple measures. 

See our Self-Assessment tools. Please complete the Pre-Assessment Questionnaire (PAQ) and our assessment department will respond to you via email with placement recommendations and your next steps.
