ASSESSMENT Test Study Guides: help students study for Math & English Assessment  * All applicants are required to take them. 

Taking a Math class in their senior year of High School will improve their score.  This will help place them in the correct English or Math courses. If a student scores low on an Assessment test, they may be placed in Remedial or lower level courses in order to bring them up to the level of required Math or English courses for graduation from that college.  Some students are asked to take the Assessment test again.
