Step 3 – Complete CASAS testing

As part of preparing for your classes, you will complete CASAS placement testing in both Reading and Mathematics. This is a program requirement for GED-seeking students. It helps us assess your reading and math abilities for program placement and evaluate your progress through the program. Testing can be done in person, on campus, or remotely.

Sign up to take both the Math and the Reading test, and plan for 1.5 hours for each test.

To sign up for the test, you’ll need the following information:

  • Student name: Your name
  • Student ID: Your PCC ID number (starts with a G)
  • Email: Either your personal or your PCC email. You will receive test confirmation and instructions at the email you provide.
  • College name: Portland Community College
Virtual testing

You can use your laptop, desktop, iPad, tablet, or Samsung phone. Chromebooks and iPhones will not work to take the assessments. Remote testing can be booked out 2–4 weeks.
