Test Score Interpretation

Understanding Placement Test Results

After assessing each student receives a printed copy of their test results. The Testing Center utilizes a set of codes, 1005, 3004, 5600, etc. for each course a student tests into. It's important to be aware of this information since PiratesNet will only contain the placement score should it become necessary to search for test results online. If you lose or discard the printout, the fastest way to locate the test results is online.  You may check your scores by going to www.mjc.edu>PiratesNet. Log in. Select Current/Former Students>Academic Profile>Assessment Scores.
