Reading Competency Test Policy

New Los Rios Reading Competency Test Policy

Effective October 18, 2013 the LRCCD Reading Competency test district-wide policy will change:

Students will now have 2 ways to pass the Reading Competency test

COMPASS Reading Comprehension Test-

All students will be allowed a maximum of two attempts on this test in a lifetime at all Los Rios Colleges. TWO ATTEMPTS MAXIMUM DISTRICTWIDE.

Students at ARC may have already met this limit because they already used the COMPASS for competency prior to October 18, 2013.

Course placement tests (Accuplacer at SCC or CTEP at ARC, CRC, FLC)

Students taking their first course placement test district-wide may pass their Reading Competency if a high enough reading score is achieved.
