ENGLISH PLACEMENT TEST

Assessment/Testing Center Located in: Student Services Center, Second Floor, Room 217

 

You should bring with you:

  • A picture ID (such as a driver's license, ECC ID card, high school ID card, passport, etc.)
  • Your El Camino College ID Number (received after filing application online)
  • A pen
  • A jacket or sweater, as the Computer Lab can sometimes be chilly

 

Helpful Facts:

  • You must have both an ECC ID number and a picture ID (such as a driver's license) to test.  There are no exceptions.
  • It is not possible to apply on-line and take the tests on the same day, as it takes at least 1-2 days in a slow period or up to 3-4 days in a busy period for the system to process your application and create an ID number for you.
  • Tests are not timed, but their length is approximately one hour each.
  • Although the tests are taken on a computer, no special knowledge of computers is necessary.
  • Results are available immediately.
  • Assessment testing is free.
  • All test placements are advisory.
  • ACT and SAT scores cannot be used at El Camino College for placement purposes.
  • PLEASE NOTE: USE OF ELECTRONIC MEDIA (CELL PHONES, PAGERS, CALCULATORS, MUSIC-PLAYERS, etc.) IS NOT PERMITTED IN THE TESTING ROOM OR IN THE TESTING LAB.  AS WELL, STUDENTS MAY NOT TEXT-MESSAGE WHILE IN THE TESTING LAB.
