About the Placement Assessment

Most applicants are REQUIRED to participate in a placement assessment process. The placement assessment includes, but is not limited to, an evaluation of reading, language usage and mathematical skills. Based on the results of the placement assessment process, placement in courses commensurate with a student’s academic achievement is mandatory. This assessment must be completed prior to enrolling in the following:

  • More than one course (three or four credit hours in length).
  • Any mathematics course.
  • ENGL 161.
  • Any course requiring college-level reading and/or English 161 as a prerequisite or co-requisite.
  • Any science course with mathematics as a prerequisite.

Students wishing to enroll in advanced courses in mathematics or certain science courses will be required to complete the mathematics section of the placement assessment. Additional information can be obtained in Enrollment Services.

Students must have certain scores on the Placement Assessment to be able to attend LCCC credit classes.   Students who do not meet these standards may be referred to ASPIRE for remediation.  Situations involving a wide variance between or among scores will be addressed on an individual basis.


Common Questions

What is the Accuplacer Placement Assessment? Why is it important?
Accuplacer is a computerized placement assessment in sentence structure, reading, and various levels of math that helps advisors place you in the proper courses as you begin your studies at Lorain County Community College. The assessment is designed to improve your chances of success here at LCCC. If you are placed in a course that is too easy for you, you may get bored and lose interest. On the other hand, if you are placed in a course that is too difficult, you may become overwhelmed and lose confidence in your abilities.

Should I review first?
Yes. Reviewing may help you to bypass some courses and place into a higher starting level. This is especially true in math. This guide contains sample items or using the Accuplacer web-based app which will help you to have a more successful assessment experience.

When am I required to complete the Accuplacer assessment?
The Accuplacer Placement Assessment must be completed prior to enrolling in:

  1. More than one course (three or four credit hours in length).
  2. Any mathematics course.
  3. ENGL 161.
  4. Any course requiring college-level reading and/or English 161 as a prerequisite or corequisite.
  5. Any science course with mathematics as a prerequisite.

Are there any exceptions?
Exceptions to the assessment might include:

  1. A student who has completed an associates degree or higher at an accredited institution
  2. A transient student in good standing
  3. A student with an ACT or SAT score (with documentation):
    • A student with an ACT English score of 18 or SAT English Writing score of 430 and SAT Critical Reading score of 480 or, effective March 2016, a 490 in Evidenced-Based English/Reading.
    • A student with an ACT Mathematics score of 22 or SAT Mathematics score of 530
    • A student with an ACT reading score of 22 or SAT reading score of 450 or 480 490 effective March 2016 in Evidence-Based English/Reading.
  4. A senior adult learner
  5. A student registering for audit
  6. A Northeast Ohio Council on Higher Education cross-registration student

If I have a learning disability, are special arrangements available?
Yes. If you have a disability, call Accessibility Services at (440) 366-4058 and request special assessment arrangements.

If English is not the language in which you learned to read and write, you may complete the English as a Second Language Placement Assessment. Please contact the International Initiatives Office at 440-366-4069 for more information.

Do I need computer skills?
No. You do not need computer skills. You will find that the Accuplacer system is very user-friendly.

The TSIA2 Exam

The Texas Success Initiative (TSIA2) is a state legislated program designed to improve student success in college by requiring all students attending public institutions of higher education, unless considered TSIA2 Exempt, to complete assessment in reading, writing and mathematics before enrolling in classes. Preparing for assessments is encouraged since test scores determine course placement. Students scoring below college level readiness are required to enroll in developmental courses which do not apply towards a degree or certificate.

  1. Apply to Lone Star College before scheduling any assessments.
  2. Complete the Pre-Assessment Activity (PAA). The PAA must be completed prior to taking the TSIA2 Assessment and is available online. Click here to access the Online PAA. Once the PAA is completed, students will get a completion certificate and can use that to take their TSIA2 Assessment with a campus testing center. Students who are TSIA2 Exempt are not required to complete the PAA unless they are choosing to take the TSIA2 Assessment.
  3. Visit the campus Advising/Counseling Office to determine what subjects are needed and to get a testing ticket.NOTE: the CyFair and Montgomery campuses no longer require a paper testing ticket. Visit their websites to submit your testing request online directly to them.
  4. Pay for your exam in person or online. The cost of the exam is $29 for all parts or $20 for ELAR only, $10 for Math only, and $10 for ELAR multiple choice only or Essay only if retesting.
  5. Refer to the Testing Centers website to find out which campuses offer walk-in testing, or to learn how to schedule an appointment to complete any needed exams. For Remote/Virtual testing options, see the “Remote Testing” instructions on this page.

Remote Testing

Before starting the Remote (Virtual) Testing process, please be sure to review the TSIA2 Exam Exemptions section of this webpage and the Skip Testing and Use Your High School Transcript for Placement FAQ first to determine which parts of the test you need, if any. If you are still unsure, you can email Advising for assistance. Students should determine what parts of the test they need to complete prior to paying for an exam.

Dual Credit students: Please DO NOT follow the Remote Testing Process below. Instead, reach out to your high school for more information on how to get referred for Remote Testing.

Please use this form to request remote testing for Placement Exams (TSIA2, Accuplacer Math, and Accuplacer ESL) and submit it to the testing center at your home campus. The testing center email addresses are on the form. NOTE: the CyFair and Montgomery campuses no longer require this form. Visit their websites to submit your request online directly to them

Remote Testing Process:

  1. Consult with Advising first to verify which parts of the test you need, if any.
  2. Complete the PAA in your My Lonestar account
  3. Pay for the exam on Marketplace: https://epay.lonestar.edu/C21101_ustores/web/classic/index.jsp
  4. Submit the Remote Testing Request Form to the testing center at your home campus (email and links are on the form itself).
  5. Within 2-3 business days, the testing center will send you a response.
  6. After PAA and Payment is completed and within 2-3 business days, the Testing Center staff will process the remote voucher and you will receive an email directly from Accuplacer with instructions on how to schedule and pay for your exam session with the virtual proctor. NOTE: the virtual proctor fee is in addition to the exam fee and will be paid directly to the virtual proctoring company. They are not LSC employees.

Who Needs to Take A Placement Test?

Not all incoming LSC students will need to take the TSIA2 Exam:

  • Students enrolled in Associate of Arts (AA) degrees, Associate of Science (AS) degrees, Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degrees, or Level II certificate programs DO need to meet the TSIA2 Exam requirement.
  • Students enrolled in Level I certificate programs and fast-track certificates DO NOT need to meet the TSIA2 Exam requirement.
  • A student is EXEMPT from the TSIA2 Exam requirement if they have recently taken an approved college assessment test such as the ACT, SAT, STAAR, TAKS, or TAAS. More information on exemptions is listed below.

The TSIA2 Exam

While the TSIA2 Exam is not pass/fail, a minimum score is needed to register in most college-level courses. Alternatively, completion of all appropriate developmental coursework with a “C” or better can serve as the prerequisite for course registration.

Prior to taking the TSIA2 Exam, incoming students must:

  1. Apply to Lone Star College before scheduling any assessments.
  2. Complete Pre-Assessment Activity.
  3. Visit the campus Advising/Counseling Office to determine what placement tests are needed. Obtain a testing ticket for needed assessments and pay the $29 (or $10 per section) fee to the campus Business Office prior to testing.
  4. Refer to the Testing Center website to find out which campuses offer walk-in testing, or to learn how to schedule a time to complete any needed assessments.

Other Placement Testing Options

Accuplacer Math

Accuplacer may be taken to place in higher level math courses, such as trigonometry, pre-calculus, and calculus. These options are only available for those who have completed and placed into College Algebra on the TSIA2 Assessment or those who are exempt from TSIA2 Math. These are computerized, non-timed exams. Students receive their scores immediately after testing.

NOTE: Prior COMPASS Math scores can still be used for placement into higher level math courses. However, this exam is no longer offered.

Accuplacer/ESL

Accuplacer/ESL is used for placement into ESOL courses*. It is a computerized, non-timed placement test. It consists of three multiple choice sections: Listening, Reading, and Language Usage. Students receive their placement scores immediately after testing.

*Due to COVID19, a temporary alternate placement instrument is available. Students should speak with an ESOL advisor to discuss options.

Источник: https://www.lonestar.edu/placement-testing-info.htm

The COMPASS self-check tool is based on 43 multiple choice questions, which focus on factual information about company practices, rather than on the opinions of the user, and point to good responsible innovation practice. By doing so, the tool creates clear boundaries of responsibility and only asks about observable responsible innovation practices that are within company control. The COMPASS self-check tool – through its questions – not only allows the user to learn about responsible innovation practices, but also about how to leverage these practices. Answer options that are provided have been designed to point to a good responsible innovation practice from a number of angles. For example, when it comes to stakeholder involvement in innovation, the tool asks which stakeholders the company usually involves, how they involve them and what measures they take to ensure this stakeholder involvement is effective. In this way, diagnosis and recommendation happens simultaneously as you use the tool. Lastly, since responsible innovation in company settings is still an evolving concept, at the end of each question, an open comment option is provided, in which you can enter your company’s different approach of how they tackle that specific issue.

New Student Placement Testing

Placement into college-level and developmental education courses at Durham Tech is primarily based on high school performance. Specifically, Durham Tech accepts students’ college transcripts, unweighted high school GPA, ACT, SAT, GED, HiSET, NCDAP, COMPASS, ASSET, and ACCUPLACER scores for college placement.

Students who have completed associate degrees or higher from an accredited college or university are college-ready and can take any gateway 100-level course on their plan of study.

Students who do not already hold an associate degree or higher must use their unweighted high school GPA for placement if they graduated from an accredited high school in the United States. ACT, SAT, GED, HiSET, NCDAP, COMPASS, ASSET, and ACCUPLACER scores can be used for placement within ten years from the date taken.

Durham Tech accepts students’ college transcripts; unweighted high school GPA; and ACT, SAT, GED, HiSET, NCDAP, COMPASS, ASSET, and ACCUPLACER scores for college placement. 

Students who have completed associate degrees or higher from a regionally accredited college or university are college-ready and can take any gateway 100-level course on their plan of study. Students with associate degrees or higher from other countries should visit the Center for the Global Learner for support.  

Students who do not already hold an associate degree or higher from the United States must use their unweighted high school GPA for placement if they graduated from an accredited high school in the United States. ACT, SAT, NCDAP, COMPASS, ASSET, and ACCUPLACER scores can be used for placement within 10 years from the date taken. 

Students who lack the appropriate high school GPA and who have ACT, SAT, GED, HiSET, NCDAP, COMPASS, ASSET, and ACCUPLACER scores from the last 10 years that do not place them into college-level courses (with or without coreq support course) will be required to take the RISE Placement Test. 

Only the following students are allowed to take the RISE placement tests:

  • Students whose US high school GPA is not unweighted

  • Students whose unweighted high school GPA is not from a U.S. high school, and they have been referred by the EAP department after first taking Accuplacer ESL placement test; 

  • Students whose ACT, SAT, GED, HiSET, NCDAP, COMPASS, ASSET, and/or ACCUPLACER scores from the last 10 years do not place them into college-level courses (with or without coreq support course

  • Students who lack Career and College Ready Graduate (CCRG) grades or DMA or DRE credits

  • Students who are referred by the English for Academic Purposes department

  • Career and College Promise (CCP) students who lack qualifying high school GPA or test scores for college-level coursework

If high school records or test scores are older unavailable, students must (re)take the placement test unless they have been continuously enrolled in classes. Students are considered continuously enrolled at the College if they register for and attend courses (including prerequisites) creditable toward a degree, diploma, or certificate in a following semester after the initial enrollment semester (attendance is required in the following fall or spring semester or the following spring or fall semester). Students who do not attend classes for two consecutive semesters (not including summer term), must reapply and retest if their scores are older than 10 years. 

Durham Tech administers the RISE placement tests to eligible students. The RISE placement tests include two RISE English tests and three RISE Math tests. All RISE placement tests are multiple choice, administered by computer and untimed. Most students need 45-60 minutes to complete each of the RISE tests.

There are two RISE English tests. You must pass the first RISE English test with a score of 70 percent or higher to qualify to take the second RISE English test.

There are three RISE Math tests. You must pass the first RISE Math test with a score of 70 percent or higher to qualify to take the second RISE Math test. You must pass the second RISE Math test with a score of 70 percent or higher to take the third RISE Math test.

There is no fee to take any portion of the test. Your scores will be shared with your academic advisor, who will assist you with academic planning and course selection.

It is critical that you take time to prepare for the placement test. Studying for the test will allow you to achieve your best score as well as save time and money with the highest possible course placement.

Students are only allowed to retake the RISE placement test only one time ever. Students cannot retest on the same day.

If special accommodations are required due to functional limitations from a disability, contact Accessibility Services at 919-536-7208 or visit the Wynn Student Center (Building 10), room 10-209 for more information.

English Language Use by Non-Native Speakers

Non-native speakers of English admitted to undergraduate study at the University of Arkansas are required to present an acceptable writing score on one of the following tests: Internet based TOEFL (iBT), IELTS PTE Academic, or ELPT. Depending on exam scores, a student may be required to take one or more English Language and Culture (ELAC) course prior to the beginning of classes in their first term of study. Non-native speakers in the following categories are exempt from this requirement:

  1. Undergraduate students who transfer at least 24 hours of credit from U.S. institutions, including courses that meet the freshman composition requirement;
  2. Undergraduate students who have completed grades 10 through 12 in and graduated from a U.S. high school and have obtained an ACT English section score of 19 or above or a SAT verbal score of 500 or above;
  3. Undergraduate students with a TOEFL iBT writing score of 28 or IELTS writing score of 6.5 or PTE Academic writing score of 77 or ELPT writing score of 81.

Diagnostic and placement testing is designed to test students’ ability to use English effectively in an academic setting, and its purpose is to promote the success of non-native speakers in completing their chosen course of study at the University of Arkansas. Test results provide the basis for placement into English Language and Culture (ELAC) support courses or course sequences. Courses are offered by the Graduate School and International Education for those students whose language skills are diagnosed as insufficient for college-level work at the level to which they have been admitted (undergraduate or graduate study). Credit in ELAC courses may count toward University of Arkansas degrees. Non-native speakers assessed as having language competence sufficient for their level of study will not be required to enroll in ELAC courses.

The ELPT is administered by Testing Services during New Student Orientation, and there is a $15.00 charge.

Undergraduate and graduate students assessed ELAC courses are required to complete these courses during their first semester of enrollment at the university.

About the Placement Assessment

Most applicants are REQUIRED to participate in a placement assessment process. The placement assessment includes, but is not limited to, an evaluation of reading, language usage and mathematical skills. Based on the results of the placement assessment process, placement in courses commensurate with a student’s academic achievement is mandatory. This assessment must be completed prior to enrolling in the following:

  • More than one course (three or four credit hours in length).
  • Any mathematics course.
  • ENGL 161.
  • Any course requiring college-level reading and/or English 161 as a prerequisite or co-requisite.
  • Any science course with mathematics as a prerequisite.

Students wishing to enroll in advanced courses in mathematics or certain science courses will be required to complete the mathematics section of the placement assessment. Additional information can be obtained in Enrollment Services.

Students must have certain scores on the Placement Assessment to be able to attend LCCC credit classes.   Students who do not meet these standards may be referred to ASPIRE for remediation.  Situations involving a wide variance between or among scores will be addressed on an individual basis.
