The Assessment process is an important step to identify appropriate placements and assist in making more informed choices to help you realize your educational goals. With the newly enacted AB 705 Bill, Norco College has implemented a new placement process to maximize the opportunity for students to enter transfer-level coursework for English and math.
Placements for English and math are now measured by using high school information which is collected during the admissions application process. These results can be located in
MyPortal by going to Academic Planning then clicking on the Placement Test Summary link. Students are highly encouraged to meet with an Educational Advisor or a Counselor to better understand placement results.
If your placements were completed before October 1, 2018, you may be eligible to receive new placements. Click here for further information.
Students - Know Your Rights! Watch this video for more information on assessment tests. California Assembly Bill AB 705 requires colleges to take into account high school coursework, high school grades, and high school grade point average when determining math and English placement upon enrollment.
Per AB 705, students have the right to complete our locally developed process for self-placement into English and math.
For English guided-self placement, students who do not place into ENG-1A directly may opt-out of ENG-91 by completing a simple form; click here for further information.
For math guided-self placement, students must visit with a counselor (schedule online counseling appointment) to discuss appropriate placement. In certain circumstances, some students will be referred to the math department chair for further assistance in self-placement.
