Frequently Asked Questions


I am afraid I will fail the test. What can you tell me to help with that?

  • First, this test is not the kind of test you pass or fail. The result of the test is used by the Counselor to appropriately place you in a class that would feel right for you and also help to map out your best educational path.
  • We strongly recommend that you prepare by taking the sample test and reviewing the other resources mentioned above.


I don’t want to take the wrong test. Did you give me the wrong math test?

  • There is only one math test. All students take the same math test. Likewise, all students take either the same English test or ESL test. These tests self-adjust to the student as they answer questions.


When will I get my scores?

  • We print out your scores immediately, so you will be able to leave the testing center with your scores in your hand. It’s important that you keep the results of the test since it will be evaluated by the Counselor to place you on the appropriate class.


Do I have to see a counselor the same day?

  • We strongly advise students to visit the A Building to see a Counselor. A Counselor will evaluate the result of your test and recommend the right course for you. Only the Counselor can remove the ‘BLOCK’ every new student will have so you can register for your classes. The Counselors can help with creating your educational plan.

Are there re-takes?

  • No, in most cases there are not. Please take advantage of the resources we provide you so that you get the most from your Assessment experience.
