Refer to the chart below to see where the EdReady assessment has placed you based on your initial score.

Compare this placement with previous assessments you have taken and/or how well you did in the last math class you took to help decide the math level at which you will be most successful. Before you can sign up for a math class, you will need to submit your score to the the Placement staff.

*EdReady placement is based on initial score only; improved scores must be reviewed by a math faculty for placement. See the next section for more information.

EdReady has tools for reviewing and re-learning topics you answered incorrectly on the assessment. If you decide to work through the EdReady material and improve your initial score, you will need to review your improved score with a WVC math instructor before enrolling in a higher-level math class.

When and where can I take this test?

You can take this test online at any time. You can test on just about any computer that has internet access. However, EdReady does recommend using the latest version of either Firefox or Chrome.

General technical issues

If you are having technical issues with EdReady, we first recommend that you try using a different browser. Chrome and Firefox tend to work the best with EdReady. If you are still encountering issues, you can reach out to EdReady's technical support by using the blue "Help" button located on the bottom left of that site.

Issues with your key

If you do not see a place to enter a key, be sure that you are on wvc.edready.org and not www.edready.org or another version of EdReady.

If your key did not work, double check that it was entered correctly. Keys are case sensitive.

How do I take a screenshot?

This will vary depending on what computer you have. Below are links to three common options.


Can my EdReady test be reset so I can start over?

No, it cannot be reset. If you want to start over, we recommend that you create a new account using a different email address.

Accessibility in EdReady

While creating your account, you can enable several accessibility features in EdReady. After entering your information, you can select "Show additional options" to enable using EdReady with a screen reader, keyboard focus wherever possible, contrast controls, and a table of contents for all pages. These options can also be turned on or off in your account settings.
