Assessment Center

Phone: (619) 482-6385

Assessment services improve students’ chances for success. The College Assessment Center provides a comprehensive and timely assessment of student skill levels in English, reading, and mathematics, and recommends appropriate course placement.

Highly qualified and trained staff ensures a secure yet relaxed testing environment aimed at minimizing student anxiety. Computerized assessment is available in the center’s Assessment Lab. Individualized accommodations are provided to meet the needs of students with disabilities. Assessments are available in alternate media upon request from Disability Support Services.

All students receive a comprehensive report summarizing their assessment results.

Assessment Center staff will also review assessment results from other colleges to determine if appropriate course placements can be made without taking Southwestern College’s placement tests.
