See Video Response Below.

A placement test is a test given to determine a student's ability level in academic areas such English, reading, math and science.  The most common placement tests are:  ACT, COMPASS, SAT, and ASSET.  Many colleges use placement test scores to determine eligibility for admissions.  ASU-Newport does not have a minimum placement score for Admissions, but does use placement scores to determine if a student is prepared for college level courses.  Students that make below 19 in math, English, and/or reading are placed in developmental courses designed to prepare them to be successful in the college level courses.
