Taking placement tests helps you enroll in the right courses at Elgin Community College. Each test is designed to measure your academic skill levels. This will help make sure you sign up for classes at the right academic level.

ECC is currently offering Writing, Reading, and Math placement tests remotely.

Prepare Yourself


Research shows students who brush-up on their skills before taking a placement test do far better than those who do not prepare. If you’re taking placement tests, we strongly encourage you to prepare by taking practice tests or sign up for our workshops. Taking a preparation workshop can save time and money.
