New Assessment Information
In response to Assembly Bill (AB) 705, East Los Angeles College has moved away from standardized testing as the primary means of assessing students. Please note:
- As of January 2019, the English & Math assessment tests are no longer offered at East Los Angeles College.
- As of January 2020, the English as a Second Language (ESL) assessment test is no longer offered at East Los Angeles College.
New English & Math Assessment
ELAC has implemented a new English & Math assessment process known as Multiple Measures. Students who earned a U.S. high school diploma, passed the General Educational Development (GED) test, or earned a high school proficiency certificate within the past ten (10) years, are eligible to participate in the Multiple Measures process.
The Multiple Measures process consists of using high school coursework, high school grades, and high school GPA to determine English and Math placement levels. For more information on how the Multiple Measures process works, please click here.
New ESL Assessment
ELAC has implemented a new English as a Second Language (ESL) assessment process known as ESL Guided Self-Placement. This new process provides ESL course recommendations by considering a student’s background and abilities with the English language. Students that would like to enroll in ESL courses are invited to participate in this new process. For more information on how the ESL Guided Self-Placement process works, please click here.
