Assessment Scores Used for Placement

State law governs whether students are required to take placement testing and whether remediation through  developmental education is required. The charts below, with required scores listed by subject area and the assessment tool, provide guidelines for placement into college level courses and developmental education remedial courses. Approved tests for college placement and College ready "cut scores" are specified in SBE 6A-10.0315. Students are assessed in three areas: English/Writing, Reading and Math.

Non-exempt students who must take a common placement test and do not meet or exceed college ready scores are required to enroll in developmental education. Students should meet with an advisor to review their options and create an educational plan.

The matrix below provides guidelines for placement into college level and remedial courses. Students should see an advisor to determine exemption or placement recommendations. Note: Scores used for placement are in effect at the time of the publication of this catalog.  However, the Florida Department of Education may mandate new college ready cut scores at any time. Placements are determined by the date the scores were earned.
