ASSESSMENT: Identifies present level of skills in English, reading and math.

ADVISEMENT: Results give direction in choosing the appropriate courses.

Assessment is a broad category of reviewing your skills and abilities in order to recommend the most appropriate classes that could contribute to your success.  If you have completed an English or math course at another college, eligibility may be determined by your academic record. Test scores from other community colleges can be used but cannot be more than three years old.

Assessment identifies a student's present level of skills in English, reading, and math. It provides direction in choosing the appropriate courses to take, based on assessment scores. You should take the placement tests prior to enrolling at IVC as this will give you and your counselor valuable information about your skills in reading, writing, and math so together you may develop the best plan for achieving your educational goals. After taking the placement tests, you should contact the Counseling Center to make an appointment at (760) 355-6543.

The Assessment Center offers the following services to help students achieve their educational and career goals:

  • Reading, Writing and Math Assessment Tests
  • English as a Second Language (ESL) Tests

Assessment schedules are available in the Assessment Center, room 401 or online at the IVC website.
