Mission Statement

The East Los Angeles College Assessment Center strives to accurately identify students’ English, Reading and Math skill levels. Carefully selected assessment instruments and multiple measures are utilized to appropriately assess student skill levels and recommend course placement. Proper course placements enable students to successfully progress through required course sequences and to achieve their educational goals.

Important Information

  1. As of January 2019, the English & Math assessment tests are no longer offered.
  2. As of January 2020, the English as a Second Language (ESL) assessment test is no longer offered.

New Assessments

English & Math Assessment

There is a new English & Math assessment process known as Multiple Measures. The process consists of using high school coursework, high school grades, and high school GPA to determine English and Math placement levels. 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. Please visit our Multiple Measures page to learn more!

English as a Second Language (ESL) Assessment

There is a new ESL assessment process known as ESL Guided Self-Placement. The process involves asking students to describe their English Language abilities to determine an ESL placement level. Students who plan to take Credit ESL classes (intermediate & advance levels) are invited to participate. Students who prefer Noncredit ESL classes (free classes for beginners) are not required to participate. Please visit our ESL Guided Self-Placement page to learn more!
