Assessment Prep Workshops
What is Assessment Prep?
Assessment Prep is geared towards students who wish to do better on the Assessment Test. If you have never taken the test, then this is your chance for an intense pre-exam practice session. If you have recently taken the test, but have not yet taken the coursework, you are still eligible to take advantage of the Assessment Prep program, after which you will reassess in the hopes of getting a better score.
Assessment Prep is designed to raise student awareness of the importance of preparation English placement exams with the purpose to improve the percentage of students placing into college-level English, while simultaneously decreasing remedial-level placement.
The English and Math Assessment Prep workshops are offered several times a year, affording students the opportunity to review Math and English skills before testing, or retesting. The one hour English workshop is designed to help students review in reading, writing, vocabulary, sentence structure, and grammar, while learning valuable test taking strategies. However, since one hour is not always enough, at the end of the workshop each student is sent home with additional practice materials and resources. The Math workshop will help students prepare for the appropriate math exam and class placement.
