As part of its responsibilities to the community, this program administers tests that enable advisors to place students in
classes appropriate to their skill level.
Descriptions of tests, sample tests and fee information are available on their
respective pages, listed on the left.
Student Assessment Services offers a responsive assessment and support system
dedicated to educational improvement.
By incorporating analysis, that is to say, assessment, into testing,
Student Assessment Services provides an opportunity to reflect on the students
we serve, to monitor the progress and effectiveness of our goals, and both guide
and support institutional decision-making. Assessment is an embedded function of
South Seattle College and a way we further understand our diverse
community's learning needs.
Student Assessment Services is a participating member of:
The National College Testing Association,
Student Affairs Administrators in High Education - NASPA,
SSC's Institutional Effectiveness Committee,
SSC's Curriculum and Instruction Committee.
We subscribe to the principles and responsibilities under the Code of Fair
Testing Practices In Education. (National Council on Measurement in Education)
