ESOL- English for Speakers of Other Languages Assessment Schedule

English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) Assessment.
At Laney College, we want to help you succeed and part of your success as a college student depends on enrolling in courses that match your abilities and skills. The ESOL Assessment Test is an important part in the enrollment process as it will help place you into courses that will help bolster your English language skills.

Testing is recommended before enrollment into any ESOL courses.
The ESOL Assessment test has two different parts. The reading comprehension part is taken on the computer, while the writing test is not currently computerized. If you are taking the ESOL Assessment, please allow  2 – 3 hours to complete the process.

  • There is no cost for the ESOL Assessment or orientation.
  • Assessment results do not keep anyone from enrolling in Laney College or any college program. However, students must meet prerequisites as stated in the college catalog.
  • You must bring identification with you on the day of your assessment and orientation. Some forms of acceptable identification are CA ID or driver license, passports, green cards, or any government issued identification with your name and picture.
  • Please no visitors or children. They are not allowed in the testing area.
  • No food or drinks are permitted in the testing area.
  • All electronic devices (i.e. cell phones, tablets, laptop, etc.) must be off during testing.
  • Assessment results must be picked up in Room A-101 with proper identification.
