Assessment Purpose and Importance
The purpose of the Assessment Placement Process is to properly identify your English, Reading, and Math skill levels. East Los Angeles College uses carefully selected assessment instruments to appropriately assess student skill levels. Accurate course placements will enable students to successfully complete courses, and complete the appropriate course skills sequence, to meet their educational goals.
Assessment Retest Policy
Students must wait one year and one day from their most recent assessment test to retest.
Students with Disabilities
If a student experiences difficulties due to a verified learning or physical disability, the student may wish to contact the Disabled Students Program & Services (DSP&S) in E1-160 or call (323) 265-8787 for information on alternative test-taking arrangements prior to assessment participation.
