Padron, Eduardo J.
This memorandum reviews the implementation of new, state-mandated placement criteria at Florida's Miami-Dade Community College (MDCC). The first section focuses on placement criteria for degree-seeking students, indicating that MDCC uses scores on the Florida College Entry-Level Placement Test for making placement decisions in reading, writing, and algebra courses and presenting definitions of students who are required to test and those who are exempt. This section also provides a chart of placement test cut scores and the required college preparatory courses by score for reading, writing, and mathematics. The next section describes requirements for students who enroll without sufficient proficiency in English, indicating that they are required to take the English Placement Test (EPT) and providing a chart of EPT scores and related college-preparatory or college-level courses. Finally, testing procedures and placement criteria are provided for post-secondary adult vocational programs at the college, indicating that MDCC uses the Test of Adult Basic Education and presenting definitions of vocational students required to take the test and those who are exempt.
