Placement Testing

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, The Maricopa Community Colleges are offering EdReady as an additional placement measure and remediation tool.  Students take the diagnostic goal and then are guided to study programs to help increase their score, as needed, in each area.

  • There are no specific study guides for the EdReady assessments, however, students are encouraged to contact the Writing Center for assistance in raising English and Reading assessment scores.

CELSA (Combined English Language Skills Assessment) is a 45-minute multiple choice test designed to measure context and grammatical understanding of the English language for students speaking English as a second language. Questions about ESL placement should be directed to a college ESL Advisor. See PDF download upper right.
