Academic Assessment

Students enrolling in The Learning Center receive assessment and placement through the following procedures:

  1. All new students are required to complete a 3 consecutive day/9 hour orientation program prior to entry into a Learning Center class.
  2. Students present a valid photo Identification Card from the Department of Motor Vehicles and a Social Security Card prior to testing. All students must be 18 years of age, emancipated, or approved by the Dean of the Learning Center.
  3. The Adult Basic Education Locator is administered to all potential students to determine the appropriate level of assessment. Test results are used to determine class placement. English as a Second Language (ESL) students are administered the Comprehensive Adult Student Assessment System (CASAS) test to determine class placement. At the completion of the assessment, students are given a class assignment and program orientation.
  4. Class assignment is based on the following:
    1. Assessment scores.
    2. Where students live or where they would like to attend, if appropriate.
    3. Attendance hours required by participating agency or agencies.
  5. The instructor provides each assigned student with placement referral information.
  6. Post-testing is administered based on hours of instruction, student classroom performance, and by instructor recommendation.
