Placement Testing FAQ's
Why is placement testing important for my student?
In order for us to place your child in the appropriate classes, we need consistent and current information on your child's knowledge, skills, and abilities. Our placements may be less accurate and subject to change during the beginning of the year without this information. We will make placements in English, mathematics, science and social science classes based on a number of factors, including the placement test scores and grades from the previous school.
What process is used to place new students?
All Freshman students, as well as Sophomore, Juniors and Seniors without transcripts, are required to complete a comprehensive assessment which will provide information about the student’s level of preparation in English, mathematics, reading and science reasoning.
What should my child bring to the test?
Each student must have a calculator with the four basic functions (addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division), plus a square root function, for the mathematics portion of the test. Your child should bring two pencils (No. 2), as well as a book to read in case he/she completes testing early.
