The Assessment process
The Assessment process is one of the required steps to enroll at the College of Alameda (see Steps to Enroll). Once students complete their Assessment session, the results are used by the Counselor to assist students in registering for the appropriate courses to match their skills in reading, writing, and mathematics to make their academic path most successful. Assessment is conducted according to a semester schedule.
Please remember that before you take your assessment test, you must complete the mandatory online orientation.
English and Math assessments will be administered using a self-paced computerized program. If you are taking both the Math and English assessments, please allow at least three 3 hours to complete the process. Appointments are required because space is limited.
