Lane Community College in Cottage Grove offers testing for current students and students who expect to become Lane students. Our placement tests include reading, writing and math. We also provide the opportunity to discuss test results with our advisor, Mary Gilroy.  Mary will assist you in exploring the meaning and implications of your test results and where to go from there. No appointment is needed at this time.

We STRONGLY encourage you to review Math before testing. You may review using this math review site.  There you will find resources to help you prepare for the Math tests. You can also use the Math Review Sheets and Resources to score the best you can.
