Welcome to the Assessment Center

No appointment is required to take the placement test during the spring 2014 semester. The placement test will be given on a walk-in basis, first-come, first-served.

In order to take the placement test you will need an active Cerritos College student ID number and a valid form of picture ID.

The current term is spring 2014. If you skipped a semester, please reapply to the college prior taking the placement test.

It is strongly recommended to take the placement test at least two weeks prior to enrollment date.

"Assessment" means the process of gathering information about an individual student to facilitate his or her success. At Cerritos College, assessment includes, but is not limited to, the collection of information regarding student's study skills. English language proficiency, aptitudes, goals, learning skills, career aspirations, academic performance, and need for special services.
