At Assessment Services, we administer a variety of tests, inventories, surveys, and other assessment instruments to provide current information about student achievement, abilities, and skills.  Multiple measures information (High School info and other factors) are also used to assist with placing students in courses.  During the counseling process students will discuss their English or ESL and Math placement results to find out what courses to enroll in.    

We offer assessment testing in the areas of Chemistry, English, English as a Second Language (ESL), and Mathematics. Services also include competency testing in English and Mathematics for the AA and AS degrees. Assessment services are available for admitted and currently enrolled students and for applicants specifically referred for assessment. Pasadena City College assessment exam results are valid for three years. All first-time college students are required to take the placement exam.
