What is assessment?
  • Assessment is a placement tool that measures a student’s basic skill level in reading, writing and mathematics.  By determining a student’s skill level, the assessment helps to place the student at a level where s/he has the best opportunity for success.  Mt. San Jacinto Community College District uses an adaptive computerized placement program, to assess your basic skills in reading, writing, and mathematics.
