Placement Testing (Compass)
The placement test is a series of short tests in math, reading and writing. The scores are used to determine placement in math and English courses. All degree-seeking students who have not taken college math or English classes need to take the placement test before registering for classes at WVC. Click here for information about signing up or to request a copy of your scores.
If you did not finish high school you can take the GED test to demonstrate you have the knowledge and skill level comparable to those who did. There are four tests in the GED: Social Studies, Science, Language Arts and Math. Click here for information about signing up.
CASAS testing is available for students wanting to sign up for Adult Basic Education classes and English as a Second Language classes. The CASAS is free. Call 509.682.6790 for testing dates.
To sign up for an SAT or ACT test, contact your local high school counselor or visit www.collegeboard.org for the SAT or www.act.org for the ACT. Wenatchee Valley College does not accept scores from either test for placement in WVC courses. For students who plan on attending other institutions that do require SAT/ACT scores, those tests are administered on the Wenatchee campus in the Eller-Fox Science Building east of the Smith Gymnasium parking lot.
A passing score on the TEAS test is one of the prerequisites for students wishing to enter the Nursing program. Click here for information about signing up.
Proctored Tests for Other Schools
Because of limited space, the Testing Center can not proctor tests for students from other schools. Contact the proctor to arrange this type of testing (509.682.6787).
