Doing well on the test is important as your score may affect the number of classes you must take before your reach your academic/career goal.

What should be included in Alternative Assessments?

Assessment and/or placement in English and Math courses, and determining pre-requisites for other courses can be determined through a variety of options. These include: 

Students are required to bring a photo ID and unofficial copies of test results or transcripts to the Testing Center. The Testing Center Staff will review the documents and determine placement.  In cases where placement is not clear based on test scores or transcripts, Testing Center staff will consult with the appropriate department and/or faculty to assist with a final determination.

AP and IB credit is explained in the Advanced Placement and Additional Ways to Earn Credit section of our online academic catalog.

Please note that if the student wants AP or IB test scores and/or a transcript officially evaluated for purposes other than placement, official copies of AP or IB test scores and/or transcripts are required and a separate process is followed.  This process is outlined on the Edmonds CC website under Transcript Evaluation.
