Answer

Mandatory Evaluation and Mandatory Placement were adopted by the Kansas City Kansas Board of Trustees on June 12, 2001. New students are required to take placement tests in reading, writing, and mathematics.  Depending on the score you earn on placements tests, developmental courses in some areas may be required to upgrade your skills before enrolling in courses at the college. 

For example, if your score is 35-55 on the reading portion, enrollment in READ0091 is required. 
Students must select classes from the approved list of courses for READ0091. They should not enroll in more than 12 semester hours (6 in summer). Students should see a developmental advising specialist and/or their developmental instructor for enrollment.

If score on the placement test is 56-72, enrollment in READ00092 is required.  Although students are encouraged to select classes from the approved list of courses for READ0091, they are not required to do so. Students should not enroll in more than 12 semester hours (6 in summer). Students should see a developmental advising specialist and/or their developmental instructor for enrollment.
