What is the purpose of the Fresno City College placement test?
Each student enrolling in Fresno City College brings different skills in English, math and reading. Many of Fresno City Colleges courses assume a certain level of knowledge. Students below this level are more likely to find the course difficult and drop out or fail. Placement testing assesses your abilities and places you in a class near your current academic level. You do not pass or fail this test. For Weekend Colleges purposes the placement test is a partial assessment of your ability to meet the skill levels required for the fast pace and course level of the work you will be facing.
