The College of Marin Assessment and Testing Center administers placement and makeup tests. We provide placement testing for English, math, and credit English as a second language.

The English and math tests are adaptive, computer-based, and untimed. Students receive a placement score immediately following completion of their test session. English and math placement test scores or their equivalents (such as satisfactory AP test scores, SAT scores, or a completed appropriate course at College of Marin or another college) are required as proof of eligibility for any course that has English or math prerequisites. The tests may be taken year-round.

In conjunction with the English as a Second Language (ESL) department, we proctor Credit ESL placement tests on specific dates. Please see our monthly schedule for dates and locations.

Diagnostic testing for math and English now available. Contact the Testing Center to schedule an appointment.

All tests require appointments. Photo ID and a College of Marin ID number are required for all placement and makeup tests. Students without photo ID will be asked to reschedule. Students who arrive late or miss their appointments may also be asked to reschedule.

 

EAP Scores – “College READY” Designation

The EAP test is embedded in the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) 11TH grade test of English Language Arts/Literacy and mathematics. These tests are part of California’s public school testing and accountability system and are required of all grade 11 students. CAASPP exams cover both California high school standards as well as the CSU placement standards. Specified levels of these scores indicate meeting CSU standards and those of participating California Community Colleges (“CCC”).

Students allow their results to be released to the California State University or California Community Colleges at the time of taking the test.

Students whose EAP results have determined their status as “College READY” are waived of the requirement to take placement tests and they may enroll directly in CSU and participating CCC college level English and/or math courses.

For information on the use of CAASPP EAP results for exemptions and placement into appropriate courses at the community college you plan to attend, go to: http://extranet.cccco.edu/Divisions/StudentServices/EAP.aspx
