What is Placement?
The goal of placement is to assess skills to ensure students are able to successfully engage with course content, and have the best chances at passing the course.
Many courses at Highline have placement prerequisites for reading and mathematics ability. The courses that students place into determine how they progress through their program of study and how long their degree will take. We have a variety of ways to assess students skills, one method doesn't work for all!
