At Terra State Community College, we care about your success. Because of this, we ask all new degree-seeking students to complete an assessment of their reading, writing, math and computer skills as part of the enrollment process. Placement testing is not an entrance exam, and it is not pass/fail. We only use this information to gauge your current level of knowledge in these areas so you register for the classes that are best for you.
Standard Placement Test
To learn more about the standard placement test used at Terra State, which includes reading, writing, math and computer skills, please view the Placement Assessment Information packet. This untimed test is adaptive, meaning the computer will adjust the difficulty of questions until it determines your level of understanding. Students who are required to complete the placement assessment must do so before attending CORE to register for classes.
Some incoming students may not need to take the placement test. In some cases, only partial testing in a specific subject may be necessary.
- Students who have valid ACT and/or COMPASS scores from within the past three years. These scores should be submitted to The Office of Admissions.
- Students who are seeking to enroll in courses that do not require math, English, or computer placement pre-requisites;
- Students who have previous credit and/or accepted transfer credit in math, English, or computer skills.
Disability Services Testing
Students who have disabilities or suspect they may require special accommodations when completing the placement assessment should contact the Office of Counseling and Disability Services at 419.559.2342. Based on your individual circumstances, accommodations for the test may be approved. Students should make contact with this office at least three weeks prior to completing the placement assessment.
