Assessment Program Description

The Assessment Office schedules and administers placement tests for new non-exempt students, continuing students who are eligible for re-assessment, and returning students who need to retake the placement test for course placement into ESL courses.

You will lose your place in priority enrollment if you do not participate in orientation, assessment, and educational planning services.

Learn about the Assessment Process. For those students whom are interested in taking the ESL test, they can learn how to schedule an appointment for this test in the Assessment Process section.

For more detailed information, visit our FAQ page.

View the Assessment Calendar for available test dates.

Please note the following changes under AB 705:

For students enrolling in math and/or English in Fall 2019 and going forward(but also for Summer 2019), assessment testing will no longer be required for students to be placed into English and Math courses. All students are eligible to enroll in transfer level math and English with varying levels of support recommended based on high school GPA, educational goal, and other information. Assessment testing into English as a Second Language (ESL) courses will continue for students who are not native speakers of English and who have not graduated from an American high school.

No English/Math assessment/placement test will be provided. ESL Accuplacer assessment test is available for those students interested in enrollling in ESL courses. AB 705 will provide a new placement process for English and Math course placement. Learn more about AB 705 and course placement

Students are encouraged to logon to their Student Portal and look for their course placement (English, Math, or ESL) in the Assessment placement section. New and returning students will provide their MMAP (multiple measures assessment placement) high school performance data when they complete their application to LACC through the CCCApply application and should then refer to their student portal later to see their course placement for English and Math. For continuing students, under the notification under their To-Do Checklist, students should complete the LACCD English and Math Placement Web Form. Once completed, students can then check for their course placement in English and Math in their student portal.
