English and Math Placement Test Information, Schedule, and Reservations - Placement Testing Center

Male student outside at Fremont campus.

The English placement test has two parts: Reading Comprehension and Sentence Skills.

  • Reading Comprehension part - measures your analytical and comprehensive reading skills and your ability to apply what you have read.
  • Sentence Skills part - measures your ability to correct sentences by substituting a word or phrase underlined in the sentence. It will also ask you to specifically rewrite sentences without changing the meaning.
  • Each part consists of 20 questions and the test is not timed, but may take approximately one hour.

Depending on your background in math, you will start with either the Arithmetic or the Elementary Algebra test. If you do well in either of these tests, you will automatically proceed to the next higher math test. The test is not timed, but may take approximately 1.5 hours.

Before taking the placement tests, please review the study guides and tips for taking the placement tests.
