Assessment Tests are given to identify the student's skill level in English, Math, ESL and Chemistry. Test scores can meet prerequisites for certain courses and will help your counselor in recommending the most appropriate courses to meet your skill levels and educational goals.
Most of our testing is currently offered on computer.
Computerized placement tests are offered for English, Arithmetic, Beginning Algebra, Intermediate Algebra, and Pre-Calculus.
Chemistry and ESL (both Credit and Non-Credit) testing are currently paper/pencil tests.
After being admitted to the college by filing an application and receiving your GCC I.D.#, you may come to the Assessment Center and talk to a staff member to determine which tests you need to take. The English, Math, and Chemistry tests are available on a walk-in basis. The Credit ESL and Non-Credit ESL placement tests require an appointment. Appointments must be made during our office hours and must be done in person in the Assessment Center. Testing schedules are available at the Center, and on this site.
It is necessary to have a GCC ID# and a photo ID (Driver's License, GCC ID Card, Passport, High School ID, Military ID etc. which includes your picture) in order to take a test in the Assessment Center. (Non-Credit ESL test does not require a GCC ID# ).
Test results are returned and placed on the college's computerized registration system as soon as possible, generally within three working days depending on the type of test taken and the day of the week etc. The test administrator will be able to tell you when your results will be ready upon completion of your exam. Results may be picked up in person at the Assessment Center, or obtained through a Kiosk or from the Website
