1 ENTRY TESTING AND PLACEMENT, DEVELOPMENTAL COURSES, AND MANDATORY COURSES Entry Testing and Placement Valencia wants you to be successful in accomplishing your educational goals. To evaluate your level of preparation, the Florida Department of Education and Valencia require entry testing for your initial placement in English, reading and mathematics courses. PERT (Postsecondary Education Readiness Test) Valencia s Assessment Office offers the PERT (Postsecondary Education Readiness Test) from McCann Associates. The PERT assesses English, reading and mathematics skills. You must apply to Valencia before being assessed, and there is no additional charge for the PERT on your first attempt. It is given on all five campuses Monday through Friday, and no appointment is necessary. Although there is no time limit, the PERT takes approximately two and a half to three hours, and is available days, evenings and on Saturday mornings. To take the PERT, visit the Assessment Office on any campus and bring an official, valid, government-issued photo identification, such as a driver s license or a passport. Completion of entry testing is required prior to participation in New Student Orientation/Advisement and prior to registration for any course that has a specific entry test score as a prerequisite. For placement purposes, each of the skill areas of English, reading and mathematics are independent of each other, which means that you may place at the college level in one or more areas and at the developmental level in the other area(s). College-level ACT and SAT scores, and CPT scores at any level, can be used for placement in lieu of PERT scores. You may use the highest score from the ACT, CPT, PERT or SAT for placement; for example, you may use your PERT score for placement in mathematics and your SAT score for placement in reading and English. If your skills are below the levels defined by the Florida Department of Education as required for successful performance in a college-credit program, you are restricted to developmental courses and any other instruction for which you are adequately prepared. The Testing/Placement Charts that provide scores and corresponding course placements are located later in this catalog section. Requirements for Taking the PERT Whether you are a full-time or a part-time student, if you do not qualify for one of the exceptions that follow, you must complete the PERT prior to participating in New Student Orientation/Advisement and prior to registration for any course that has a specific entry test score as a prerequisite (Florida State Board of Education Rule 6A ). If your entry test scores are more than two years old they have expired. You must take the PERT for placement. A student is eligible for a retest in one of the following instances: 1. If you have not begun the prep coursework in the subject area. 2. If your test scores are expired, and you have not begun the prep coursework in the subject area. 3. If both your test scores and prep coursework are more than two years old. If you have two sets of PERT scores in the last two years you are not eligible to retake the PERT. Retakes are not permitted without written permission and additional preparation through participation in a review session. For each section of the PERT, you can retest only one time. (State Board of Education Rule 6A ) You cannot retake the PERT once you have begun any sequence of developmental course work. There is a $10 PERT retake fee for each subtest. 52 Exceptions to Requirements for Taking the PERT You will be exempt from taking the PERT, unless needed as a prerequisite for a specific course, if you provide written documentation for one of the following exceptions: 1. You have official ACT, CPT and/or SAT scores less than two years old that place you in college-level course work at Valencia. 2. You have attended a U.S. regionally accredited college or university in which English was the language of instruction and have completed college-level or the highest developmental level course work, as evaluated by Valencia, in English and/or mathematics with a grade of C or better. 3. You hold a college degree from a U.S. regionally accredited college or university in which English was the language of instruction and have submitted your official transcript to Valencia for review. 4. Your official Valencia record indicates that you are a transient student. 5. Your official Valencia record indicates that you are enrolled for teacher recertification. 6. Your official Valencia record indicates that you are enrolled in an Applied Technology Diploma, an Advanced Technical Certificate, a Career Certificate, or a Technical Certificate program. 7. Your official Valencia record indicates that you are enrolled for job improvement or personal interest. 8. Your official Valencia record indicates that you are enrolled in the Educator s Preparation Institute. 9. You choose to begin with the most basic developmental courses: Developmental I, Developmental Writing I, and Developmental Math I. This decision means you waive your right for entry testing now or in the future, and you will be

2 required to complete satisfactorily the course SLS 1122 Student Success. ACT, CPT and SAT If you have taken the ACT and/or SAT and your scores place you in college-level course work in English, reading and/or mathematics at Valencia, or if you have CPT scores at any level, you may use these scores as an alternative to the corresponding sections of the PERT. You may use your ACT, CPT and/or SAT scores if they are less than two years old. If you have the required SAT-I or Enhanced ACT scores, you must submit an official score report to any campus Assessment Office. Entry Testing for Non-Native Speakers of English Instruction at Valencia is in the English language. Students must have adequate mastery of the English language to pursue a course of study for credit. If you are seeking a degree or a career certificate or you are a dual enrollment student, you must complete an approved entry test. If you want to enroll in a course with an English, reading or mathematics prerequisite, and you have not satisfied the prerequisite through successful completion of course work, as determined by Valencia, you must complete an approved entry test (LOEP or TOEFL). You will not be required to demonstrate English as a second language proficiency if you have completed Freshman English Composition or its equivalent (as determined by Valencia) with a grade of C or higher, or if you have earned an Associate in Arts degree, Bachelor s degree or higher for which English was the language of instruction. Official college/university transcripts are required for documenting English proficiency. LOEP and TOEFL The LOEP and TOEFL are the tests of English proficiency for non-native speakers of English used for initial course placement at Valencia. Most students take only one of these two tests. To be used, your scores must be less than two years old. When you take the LOEP (Levels of English Proficiency) test, you also will be asked to write a brief essay in English. You will have one combined score for the LOEP and Essay. You must have applied to Valencia and paid the college application fee to take the LOEP and Essay; there is no additional charge and no appointment is necessary. The LOEP and Essay may be taken days or evenings on any Valencia campus; allow approximately three and onehalf hours for completion. To take the LOEP and Essay, visit an Assessment Office on any campus and bring an official, governmentissued photo identification such as a driver s license or a passport. You may take the LOEP and Essay only once every 90 days. Once you begin course work in English for Academic Purposes (EAP), you are no longer eligible to retest on the LOEP and Essay. The TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) is given in test centers throughout the world. To use a TOEFL score at Valencia, you must submit an official score report. Valencia accepts official TOEFL scores from the computer, Internet and paper versions of the test. Immigrants, Refugees and U.S. Citizens Who Do Not Speak English as a Native Language If you are an immigrant, refugee or U.S. citizen who does not speak English as a native language, your entry testing will begin with the PERT, and you may also be required to complete the LOEP (Levels of English Proficiency) test and Essay. If you know you want to improve your English language skills through English as a second language courses, ask to begin with the LOEP (Levels of English Proficiency) test and Essay. If your placement level cannot be determined by the test you take, you may be required to take an additional test(s). If your English proficiency is such that you are not required to take English for Academic Purposes (EAP) courses, the PERT in English, reading and mathematics will be used to place you in appropriate courses. If you score an average of 116 or above on the LOEP and Essay, or have a TOEFL score of 197 or above on the computer version or 71 or above on the Internet version, or 530 or above on the paper version, your scores on the PERT will be used for course placement. If you score an average of on the LOEP and Essay, or have a TOEFL score of on the computer version, or on the Internet version, or on the paper version, you will be required to complete English For Academic Purposes (EAP) courses. If your TOEFL score is less than 133 on the computer version, or less than 45 on the Internet version, or less than 450 on the paper version, you will be required to take the LOEP and Essay for placement. If you need beginning English, you will be referred to Valencia s Center for Global Languages, a county Adult Education 53 ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) Program, and/or private providers of English language instruction. The Testing/Placement Chart for English for Academic Purposes that provides scores and corresponding course placements is located later in this catalog section. If you place in EAP courses, you may take the Math portion of the PERT for math course placement once you are enrolled in EAP Level 5 or Level 6 courses. In addition, if you place into EAP Levels 2, 3 or 4, you will not be required to attend a New Student Orientation. Your placement and course registration will be explained to you by an Academic Advisor. Please go to a Student Services Office on any campus to meet with an Academic Advisor. For further information about the PERT, see Entry Testing at the beginning of this catalog section. You may enroll in a math course along with your EAP Level 6 courses. Non-immigrants (International Students) If you are an international student and wish to be admitted to Valencia on a non-immigrant visa (for example, F, M, J), you must present a minimum score on the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) of 133 on the computer version, or a minimum score of 45 on the Internet version, or a minimum score of 450 on the paper version or a minimum average score of 86 on the LOEP (Levels of English Proficiency) test and Essay given by Valencia. You will be required to complete English as a second language (EAP) courses if your TOEFL score is on the computer version, or on the Internet version, or on the paper version, or an average of on the LOEP and Essay. If your TOEFL score is below 133 on the computer version, or below 45 on the Internet version, or below 450 on the paper version, or your LOEP and Essay score is below Level 4, you will not be eligible for admission to Valencia until the minimum TOEFL or LOEP and Essay requirement is achieved. If your TOEFL score is 197 or above on the computer version, or 71 or above on the Internet version, or 530 or above on the paper version, or an average of 116 or above on the LOEP and Essay, your scores on the PERT will be used for course placement. The Testing/Placement Chart for English for Academic Purposes (EAP) that provides scores and corresponding course placements is located later in this catalog section.

7 Developmental Courses in, Mathematics and English Developmental courses help students attain basic skills in reading, English and mathematics so that they have a better chance at success in college-level courses. Valencia offers developmental courses in reading, mathematics, English and English as a second language for academic purposes. Developmental courses do not apply toward an associate degree or technical certificate. For course level placement, which is based on entry testing, each of the three skill areas of reading, English and mathematics are independent of each other. You may place at the college level in one area(s) and at the developmental level in the other area(s). If your skills are below the levels defined by the Florida Department of Education as required for successful performance in a college-credit program and you are degree-seeking, you will be required to enroll in developmental courses at the beginning of your enrollment and continue to enroll in them each term until you have completed your required courses.

9 Requirements for Passing All Developmental and EAP Courses Each developmental course and each English for Academic Purposes (EAP) course must be completed with a grade of C or better for successful completion and/or to advance to the next level of course work. A departmental final is a component of the developmental courses in mathematics (MAT 0022C and MAT 0028C), English (ENC 0025C), and reading (REA 0017C), and the exit-level EAP courses (EAP 1620C and EAP 1640C). To pass these exit-level courses, you must successfully complete of all course requirements. If you successfully complete the course work but do not pass the departmental final for writing (ENC 0025C or EAP 1640C), or for math (MAT0022C or MAT0028C), you must re-enroll in the same course or, if you are recommended by your professor, you may enroll in an Intensive Tutorial* (ENC 0025N or MAT0028N). Students are eligible for ENC 0025N Intensive English Tutorial after their first attempt in ENC 0025C or EAP 1640C. Students are eligible for MAT0028N after their first attempt in MAT0022C or MAT0028C. Students recommended for a Tutorial will receive a grade of Incomplete in the exit-level course. To be registered in the Tutorial, the student will sign a contract with the Academic Dean and work with assigned instructors to prepare for the departmental final. Limitation on Attempts in a Course State Rule 6A permits only three attempts at Valencia to pass the same course. The same course usually means the course number is the same when posted on a Valencia transcript. For example, you have only three attempts to pass REA 0007C Developmental I with a grade of C or better. For further information on attempts, see the Course Attempts, Course Withdrawal, Course Repeats and Grade Forgiveness entry in the Academic Policies section of this catalog. Courses that have been deemed equivalent will all count as attempts even if the current course number is not the same as your previous attempt(s). Mandatory Courses Mandatory courses are courses in developmental reading, mathematics and English; English for Academic Purposes; and Student Success, which a student may be mandated to take and complete successfully. Based on his/her entry test scores, a student may not be required to take any of the listed mandatory courses or may be mandated into one or more of the courses; students who place in developmental reading, mathematics and English must complete successfully SLS 1122 Student Success. The following are mandatory courses: Developmental EAP 0281 High Beginning Combined Skills EAP 0300C Low Intermediate Speech EAP 0320C Low Intermediate EAP 0340C Low Intermediate Composition EAP 0360C Low Intermediate Structure EAP 0400C Intermediate Speech EAP 0420C Intermediate EAP 0440C Intermediate Composition EAP 0460C Intermediate Structure ENC 0015C Developmental English I ENC 0025C Developmental English II MAT 0018C Developmental Math I MAT 0022C Developmental Math Combined MAT 0028C Developmental Math II REA 0007C Developmental I REA 0017C Developmental II College-Level EAP 1500C High Intermediate Speech EAP 1520C High Intermediate EAP 1540C High Intermediate Composition EAP 1560C High Intermediate Structure EAP 1620C EAP 1640C SLS 1122 Advanced Advanced Composition Student Success Requirements for Completing Mandatory Courses If you are a degree-seeking student and, based on entry testing, you place in one or more mandatory courses, you will be required to enroll in the course or courses at the beginning of your enrollment and continue to enroll in them each term until you have completed them successfully. You must comply with the rules for completing your required mandatory courses as described in the chart that follows on the next page. If you are a degree-seeking student and, based on scores on the LOEP and Essay or TOEFL, you place in English as a Second Language for Academic Purposes (EAP) courses, you will be required to enroll in the courses when you begin at Valencia and continue to enroll in them each term until you have completed your Mandatory EAP courses. (See EAP Completion Chart in this catalog section.) If you are a non-degree-seeking student (enrolled in a Technical Certificate program, as a transient student, for teacher recertification, for job improvement or for personal interest), you are not required to take a developmental course(s) unless needed as a prerequisite(s) for a specific course. * There is no Intensive Tutorial for REA0017C or EAP1620C. 60
