About Placement Testing

The two tests in math and reading is used as a guide for placement in the appropriate level of class at ICC and is not pass/fail. The average time for each test is 45 minutes but is not timed. You are encouraged to take as much time as you need.

There is no charge for placement testing, however, an appointment is required as well as a Photo ID prior to taking the test.

Results are available a few minutes after completing the test. Math results are valid for 3 years while reading results are valid for 5 years.
