It is very important that you study for your placement test. We recommend spending at least two hours reviewing each test area â€“ English and math. By obtaining a better score, you will have more class options and can get a head start towards achieving your academic goals.
RISE English Test
There are two RISE English placement tests. Students must earn a 70% on each test to advance to the next. That is, if students earn a 70% or higher on Test 1, then they can take Test 2. If students do not earn a 70% or higher on Test 1, then they cannot take Test 2.
Student performance on each RISE English test corresponds with the RISE tiers that are used for placement into collegelevel courses with or without corequisite support and into the ENG 002 Transition English course.
Students may take the RISE English placement test a maximum of two times.
