Understanding your Results

Your assessment results include the date of your test, the name of the test you took, and the number of questions that you answered correctly. The number shown is not the percentage that you answered correctly. If you are looking at your assessment results in eServices, you will see only placement information.

Course Placements

This section indicates the English Writing, ESL, Math, and/or Reading course into which you have placed. Placement into a course means that you are ready to begin that course based on these results. You do not meet the requirements for any course that is at a higher level. Refer to the English/ESL/Math course sequences in the college catalog. We recommend that you register for the course indicated in your placement results.

Prerequisites

Prerequisites are conditions of enrollment that you are required to meet prior to enrollment in certain courses. Make sure you read the class schedule and meet the prerequisites for the courses that you select.

You must assess one course higher than any course you are required to complete for a prerequisite. For example, if the course prerequisite is completion of Math 100 with a "C" or better you must place into Math 120, the course one level higher. When you assess into Math 100 it means that you are ready to begin that course. It does not mean that you have the same skills as a student who has successfully completed the course.

Reading

To graduate from the Los Rios district, you are required to complete the reading curriculum through ENGRD 310 with a "C" or better or to meet the reading competency graduation requirement through assessment. Your first placement test will be counted for the reading graduation requirement if you earn a passing score. After the first placement test, you will have 2 attempts at the COMPASS/Accuplacer reading graduation competency test. Compass was used from October 2013 to November 2016. Accuplacer was implemented in December 2016. If you do not pass the COMPASS/Accuplacer reading test, you will need to complete your recommended reading class or classes. We recommend that you do not wait unitl your last semester to meet your reading requirement. 

Math 

If your result is "undetermined," this means that your score was too low to receive a placement. You should take a different math assessment that is one or two levels lower. Refer to the math sample questions to pick the correct math assessment.

Students are encouraged to meet with a counselor for further interpretation of their assessment results and for assistance with course planning. To make a counseling appointment, please call (916) 608-6510(FLC), (530) 642-5645 (EDC), or (916) 255-3432 (RCC).
