New Assessment Process
East Los Angeles College has implemented a new assessment process known as Multiple Measures. Students who earned or obtained one of the following within the past ten (10) years, are eligible to participate in the new assessment process.
- Earned a high school diploma from a U.S. High School - or -
- Passed the General Education Development (GED) test - or -
- Obtained a high school proficiency certificate
If students meet the criteria above, then they are eligible to be placed into English and Math courses based on high school coursework, high school grades, and high school GPA. Student who do not meet the criteria above will be referred to the Guided Self-Placement process for English and Math placement. Please visit our webpage at a later time for more information on the Guided Self-Placement process. Students who are eligible for the Multiple Measures process will self-report their high school background information by answering the Multiple Measures questions.
If you recently applied to ELAC (or any of the nine colleges within LACCD), then you may have already answered the Multiple Measures questions as they are part of the CCCApply admissions application. Therefore, you may view your placement results on your student portal, under “Assessment”.
If you are a continuing student and would like to participate in the new assessment process, then you may access the Multiple Measures questions through your student portal. Click on “English and Math Placement” under your “To-Do Checklist”. Once the questions are answered, you may view placement results on your student portal within 24-72 hours.
Please note that the English as a Native Language (ENL) English & Math assessment tests are no longer offered as of January 2019. The English as a Second Language (ESL) English assessment test is still offered.
