Assessment

Welcome to Folsom Lake College Assessment. The purpose of assessment testing is to place students in English, English as a Second Language (ESL), and Math classes that match their skill level so that students can be successful. 

English

If you have received a placement of ENGWR 300, you do not have to go to the Assessment Center for an English-Writing assessment. Your placement is based on your high school records.

If you have placed into any other English-Writing class, you may go to the Assessment Center to see if you can test into a higher level of English-Writing. Your placement will be based on a review of your assessment results and high school records.

If you have an AP Test result (score of 3 or higher) for English Language & Composition/English Literature & Composition, or a college transcript from outside Los Rios showing that you passed the first semester composition course (or prerequisite), please bring Photo ID and printouts of results to the Admissions and Records Counter in Aspen Hall (FL1) to complete the English Prerequisite Clearance form or obtain the Prerequisite Challenge application.

Please note: Unofficial printouts will allow you to enroll. Officials will be required for possible college credit.

To review your course placements, log into your eServices account. Click the Steps to Success tab.

Reading

If you have received a placement of Test Out - Competency Met, you will not be required to take an English -Reading (ENGRD) class. If you assessed into any ENGRD class, you may go to the Assessment Center to see if you can test into a higher level of English - Reading or to see if you can meet competency. To review your course placements, log into your eServices account. Click the Steps to Success tab.

ESL

If English is not your first language, please visit the Assessment Center to take the ESL Assessment Test.

Math

If you have not passed college or AP math or statistics, please go to the Assessment Center to take the math assessment. Prepare ahead of time by studying! It generally takes 1-2 hours. Please bring your Photo ID, FLC Student ID number, $2 for parking, and a copy of your high school transcript. Your placement will be based on a review of you assessment results and high school records.

If you have an AP Test result for Calculus or Statistics (score of 3 or higher), or a college transcript from outside Los Rios showing that you passed ("C" grade) a math or statistics class, please bring Photo ID and printouts of results to Admissions and Records (FLC,EDC,RCC) to complete the Math Prerequisite Clearance form or to obtain the Prerequisite Challenge application.

Please note: Unofficial printouts will allow you to enroll. Officials will be required for possible college credit. 

 

 To be admitted to assessment testing, students must:

1. Bring their student ID number. Students must be currently active as an FLC student by completing the online application or the supplemental enrollment form. Students who applied to another Los Rios college must go to their eServices account to add FLC.

2. Bring a photo ID (school or government issued). Acceptable photo ID includes: driver's license/state ID card, Los Rios student ID card, high school ID, passport, or other college photo ID card.

3. Comply with districtwide assessment practices (effective October 1, 2015).
