​Assessment Center​

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).  Students are also exempt if they have a U.S. high school transcript from which they graduated. 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.  Please read more about our assessments below.  The schedule is also below.  To make an appointment for an assessment test, please call 408-274-7900 Ext:6636.

Applicant Ba​​sic Skills Assessment (English skills and math skills)


There are two types of language assessment tests: 

  • The "English As A First Language" (EFL) test is the best English skills assessment for persons who speak English only or for persons who speak English and another language(s) and consider their skill in English to be stronger than their skill in the other language(s). 
  • The "English As A Second Language" (ESL) test is the best English skills assessment for persons who speak English and another language(s), and consider their skill in the other language(s) to be stronger than their skill in English.​

Mathematics assessment tests are offered to determine math skills on levels ranging from basic mathematics to beginning calculus.

The EFL, English as a First Language assessment consists of multiple choice, reading test, and a writing test. 

The ESL test consists of a listening test and a reading test on the computer and writing a  20 minute essay.
