CSM Assessment Services conducts the college assessment program which includes English, Reading, ESL, and Mathematics assessment components. These assessments are intended to measure skills which research has shown to be closely related to academic success. These multiple measurements represent student strengths and capabilities.

The College uses the validated statewide model that includes predictive multiple measures. Students are advised to discuss course placement results with a counselor so that they can assist with the development of a student educational plan (SEP).
