For entering students, Leeward uses a variety of ways to check your skill levels in English and math, so you'll be placed in the right level of those classes.
If you've graduated high school, you can use any of the placement measures below. Additional placement testing may not be necessary.
If one of the measures below leads to placement in a developmental education class, you have the option of taking a placement test if you think it will improve your placement. If you are still a high school student or if you feel your high school measures do not accurately reflect your current skill level, please see a counselor for placement options.
