** Standard Assessment Practices - Frequently Asked Questions**
The Los Rios Community College District, effective Oct. 1, 2015, has established standard assessment practices for all four colleges, including important changes to retesting rules. These new practices will apply to every student, regardless of which college(s) they attend, who are planning to take the English as a Second Language (ESL) assessment.
Please note that ATB and Math Competency testing have seperate re-test policies. Refer to our "Testing Offered" section.
