Request for START Score Report
The START test is no longer the only tool to determine your English and math placement
at Allan Hancock College. You can be placed in English and math classes based on multiple
measures including your performance in high school. This means, there is an opportunity
to shorten your time to graduate and/or transfer.
Do my START Scores give me the highest placement in English and math?
Placement will be determined by whichever option yields the highest placement, i.e.,
high school coursework or START test results. START testing will not be needed for
priority registration as prior high school courses will be used in lieu of the testing
option if properly reported on the CCCApply application and a student has attended
high school within the last ten years.
Many factors can affect a student’s decision to use START test scores for placement
in English and math:
- Students may believe their high school coursework and grades are not indicative of
their abilities and could potentially improve their placement.
- Students may be returning to school after a long educational absence and believe their
high school course knowledge would not apply to them at this time.
- Students will not be at a disadvantage if they do decide to take the START test as
the higher placement between the test and high school coursework will be used for
