Liberty University’s Online Programs Assessment Information
Has it been years since you have taken a math or English course? Are you wondering whether you are ready to jump into upper-level courses in those subjects? Don’t worry!
Liberty University’s online programs have placement tests that help gauge your readiness once you have been accepted into a degree program. These assessments are free and do not impact your GPA.
Here’s How to Get Started:
- If you have not already done so, set up your Liberty Account. This establishes your username and password and allows you to access the online assessments.
- Choose your exam dates. Allow the prescribed time for each assessment, preferably on different days. Exams should be taken within the next few weeks so that placement can be established before registration.
- Prepare for the assessments using the study materials located in Canvas.*
- Reserve time in a quiet place in which you can take each exam.
Your exams will be scored automatically and posted to your student records, showing your recommended level of English and math courses.
*Study materials only available for Math Assessment.
