The Assessment Center at Lake Washington Institute of Technology prepares students
for today's careers and tomorrows opportunities by providing quality testing and assessment
services to our students, faculty, staff and our community.
The following expectations apply to all tests:
The Assessment Center at Lake Washington Institute of Technology offers accommodated testing for students with disabilities.
If you would like to request for disability accommodations for testing please contact the Disabilities Support Services office. The required lead time for requests to be processed varies depending on the type of test.
After your accommodations are approved, you will need to contact the Assessment Center to make a testing appointment. Accommodated testing appointments are usually offered on the first Friday of each month. Depending on the type of accommodations needed, an appointment may be necessary for theSelf-Guided Placement test. If so, a DSS coordinator will arrange this with the Assessment Center.
For all entering students at any Washington community and technical college, system policy provides that:
A student who qualifies for a specific level of pre-college math, English, or reading, either through course completion or local skills assessment, will have that course placement level honored at another Washington Community or Technical college if the student so requests, even if the courses may not be exact equivalents.
A student who qualifies for entry into college-level math, English, or reading, either through course completion or local skills assessment, will be considered to have met the entry college-level standard at every community and technical college.
Students requesting reciprocity must initiate the process within one year of their initial placement assessment.
At LWTech the single point of contact is:
Students who wish to use this policy must:
Schedule an appointment with the point of contact listed above or her designee.
At the appointment, provide placement data (test scores, placement report, etc.) and an unofficial transcript from the previous college attached to a Request Form. An official transcript will be required if credit was earned in a course.
LWTech will evaluate the documents and place the student in a manner equivalent to placement at the former college.
