PLACEMENT  TESTS

PLACEMENT TESTS are required  for all new students enrolling in certain HEED math or English classes. Current HEED students in a HEED math or English class do not need to complete a test for the following year. 

Math Placement Tests:

The purpose of the math placement test is to provide a realistic view of the student's strengths and weaknesses so an accurate class placement can be made. Class placement is based on mathematical readiness as evidenced on the placement test not on the grade or age of the student.  The student may be placed in a class at a lower level than anticipated so that the skills needed for future success will be firmly set.  It may also be necessary for the student to brush up on the skills necessary to excel in a given class prior to the start of the class.  

 

English Placement Tests:

Middle School English placement test is only necessary for 8th graders.  All high school and college HEED English classes require a placement test for new students.  Class placement is based on grammar and writing readiness as evidenced on the placement test not on the grade or age of the student.  The student may be placed in a class at a lower level than anticipated so that the skills needed for future success will be firmly set.  It may also be necessary for the student to brush up on the skills necessary to excel in a given class prior to the start of the class.
