What is Assessment?

Assessment is a tool used to assist college students in selecting courses best suited to their abilities and educational goals. Specifically, assessments help students identify their skill levels in English, mathematics, and ELAC (English Language Acquisition).

The Placement Assistant is important because it lets the college know what English or math class to place students in. 

The Assessment Office uses the online Placement Assistant to assess students for English & math. The ELAC test is multiple choice. It is also a timed 45 minute test.
