English (Reading & Writing) Practice

The English placement tests determine your English course placement. The tests are untimed, standardized, multiple-choice assessments done on the computer.

What's on the test?


Helps determine if you have the reading skills necessary to succeed in a standard entry, college-level course. It is a multiple-choice test that evaluates reading comprehension, vocabulary, and reader profile.


Requires students to find and correct errors in usage and mechanics, including basic grammar, punctuation and sentence structure, and rhetorical skills, including strategy, organization and style. It is a multiple choice test.

Visit the Testing Center if you need paper-based practice.
