Testing Services

The Academic Achievement Center (AAC) offers both Placement Testing (English and math placement) and Make-Up Testing (for missed exams).



Placement Testing     Placement Workshops     Make-Up Testing




PLACEMENT TESTING

All new students to MassBay seeking a degree or certificate are required by the Massachusetts Board of Higher Education to complete placement testing soon after being accepted to the college. Placement tests determine the English and math classes with which you will begin your academic career. A photo ID and an appointment are required to take a test in the AAC.

Placement Testing is the first step in the SOAR (Student Orientation, Advising and Registration) process. The following tests are required:

 

  1. Mathematics and
  2. English for native speakers OR English as a Second Language (ESL).

Math and English tests together take approximately three (3) hours to complete.
