The Pre-Placement Questionnaire will help you determine if you need to take the placement test or if you might have other documentation that would place you in math and English classes. The Pre-Placement Questionnaire is not a test and takes less than a minute to complete. If you are a high school student who is interested in the Running Start program, do not take the Pre-Placement Questionnaire; instead contact the Running Start Office directly at (509) 682-6855 or (509) 682-6591 for program eligibility requirements.
If the results of the Pre-Placement Questionnaire state that you do need to take the placement test, use the links below to study. Once you are ready, contact the Wenatchee or Omak Testing Center to schedule your test (contact info below).
