Do you need help with testing?
Avila offers Math and English placement tests to students. If it has been awhile since you have taken the ACT and would like to place higher in a course than your ACT would allow, Avila offers math and English placement tests.
You MUST bring a current photo I.D. when you take the placement test.
ENGLISH PLACEMENT TEST
The English placement test determines whether you will take Writing Strategies, Composition I, or Composition II. Each student is allowed to take the placement test twice, but only the highest score will determine placement.
MATH PLACEMENT TEST
The Math placement test determines whether a student will enroll in Mathematical Literacy, Techno Mathematics, College Algebra or Applications of College Math with or without a lab, Trigonometry, Pre-Calculus, or Calculus & Analytic Geometry I. Each student is allowed to take the placement test twice, but only the highest score will determine placement. Calculators will be provided for testing.
