The Assessment Center provides testing and proctoring services for GTCC as well as other schools and universities. We also offer testing services for employers in the surrounding communities. Through our site we offer paper and/or computer based tests. We maintain and adhere to all standards set forth by the National College Testing Association.

Placement Testing

GTCC currently uses a version of College Board’s Accuplacer test known as NCDAP (North Carolina Diagnostic and Placement) for its placement test. However, a change is underway. We will continue to use the NCDAP in the short term. However, the Reinforced Instruction for Student Excellence (RISE) placement test criteria is different and fewer students will actually be required to take a placement test. Please  click here to determine if you are eligible for a placement test waiver.
