Placement Testing


Effective placement testing programs have been shown to be related to increased student retention and academic success. At Goodwill Technical College, the ACCUPLACER is used to assess readiness for program level courses. Placement scores for program entrance are set at levels that are appropriate for program content to ensure that successful program completion is likely. Students whose placement scores do not meet the minimum levels required by the program into which they wish to enroll are required to take additional learning support courses in basic literacy and/or math upon enrollment to upgrade their skills.
