Students attending Grossmont College are required to participate in assessment. The
primary goal of assessing Math readiness is to determine an appropriate Math start
level with the knowledge that students will be reasonably prepared.
Students will be required to answer a short Assessment Questionnaire (AQ) to determine appropriate placement. Students seeking a degree or certificate should receive a placement that is consistent with their previous preparation that also aligns with their educational goals.
Instead of relying solely on placement exam scores, the passage of AB 705 requires the community college to use the following performance data to determine course preparedness:
Students without transcript data are required to complete an Assessment Questionnaire (AQ) and will receive placement results based on their answers. The questions students must answer pertain to high school GPA, courses taken and grades.
If possible, we recommend students refer to their high school transcript to answer
the questions accurately because the questionnaire can only be taken once.
If you have questions about choosing the best Math course for your educational goal, please see your counselor for assistance.
