Assessment Test services are available as one method of placing students into English and math classes. Some students may not have to take an assessment test. For example, students are exempt from placement testing and assessment if they have earned an Associate or Bachelor's degree from a U.S. college or university or have completed college course work in English and Math at another college (transcript required). The Assessment test is not a pass-fail test and does not exclude you from admission to Evergreen Valley College. It is a test to determine the appropriate course level for you.
