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. 

 To be admitted to assessment testing, students must:

1. Bring their student id number. Students must be currently active as a 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 district-wide assessment practices (effective October 1, 2015).

Placement Testing

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

Folsom Lake College accepts assessment results from all Los RIos Colleges (American River College, Cosumnes River College, and Sacramento City College). We do not accept results from any other colleges. Also, we do not accept EAP test results.  Folsom Lake College does grant credit towards its degrees for examinations successfully completed through the College Board Advanced Placement (AP) program. Please see the College Catalog for further information about AP tests.

DSPS Accommodations

Students who need special accommodations for testing should call the DSP&S office at (916) 608-6611 for FLC or at (530) 642-5630 for EDC.

Assessment Preparation

You are more likely to place accurately and at a higher level if you are familiar with the content and format of our computerized assessment tests. It is to your benefit to prepare in advance for this important exercise!

We have developed a preparation tutorial to introduce you to the format and content of the assessment tests. Reviewing sample questions will help familiarize you with concepts as well.
