Assessment and Testing

Assessment is a component of the Student Success and Support Program. The assessment program at Moorpark College provides assessment services to help students determine appropriate placement into English and math classes. The assessments are not pass/fail and are used for placement recommendations only.


The English assessment test is a self-placement that consists of comprehension, grammar, and reading questions that will give you an idea of where you should place yourself in an English class.


The Math assessment test serves as a “pre-requisite” for enrollment in any non-transferable math course. It will tell you how the math program is set up and help you decide on the very best math class for you. If you determine that you are eligible to take a transferable math course, you will need to submit evidence to the Counseling office.


***Remember: Completing the assessment test takes you a step closer to receiving priority registration.***
