The purpose of assessment testing is to place students in English as a Second Language (ESL) classes that match their skill level so students can be successful.

Important Announcement

Effective February 1, 2019, standardized assessment tests will no longer be administered for placement into English and Math classes. ESL tests will still be offered.

With the newly enacted Assembly Bill 705, students who graduated from a United States high school in the last 10 years will receive English and Math placements using high school records instead of standardized assessment tests. Those students should be able to view their placements in their eServices accounts in March 2019. To view your placements log into your eServices account, click the Student Center tile, and then click the Steps to Success tab.

Students who have foreign transcripts, and students who graduated more than 10 years ago will use a Guided Self-Placement tool to choose the course(s) most suitable for them. More information concerning this tool will be available in March 2019.

The process for Advanced Education students is still being determined.


If English is not your first language, please visit the Assessment Center to take the ESL Assessment Test. View our testing dates and times.

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).

Placement testing is on a first come, first serve basis. No appointments are necessary. Please see Testing Calendars for testing dates and times.
