WCCCD requires that all first-time students with intent to pursue a degree or certificate program must be assessed for skills in reading, writing, and mathematics prior to registering for classes.
What is Assessment Testing and what do the scores mean?
Assessment testing is a process by which the District advising staff can determine your skill levels in reading, writing and math. The test that you will take does not determine if you are admitted to one of the District campuses. It provides the advising staff with the information that they need regarding your skill levels so that they can accurately advise you on the selection of courses that are appropriate for your skill level.
How do I schedule an assessment test?
No appointment is required to take the Compass Test. What you need for the test:
- Your Student Admit Number: Known as "A Number"
- Photo ID
- Please plan to stay at least two hours for your testing session.
