Fall 2021 College Placement Reading Test for Freshmen and Sophomores
Underclassmen planning on taking a Dual Enrollment course need to take the Reading Test from Rio Salado in order to complete their registration process. Originally, this test was going to be given to those students this spring; but due to COVID-19 that is not possible. However, Rio Salado College is offering an online test for students to take at home to fulfill this requirement.
Steps for students to complete:
- Begin the Registration process at Rio. Please follow the directions here: DE Registration Steps.pdf. You need to be admitted to Rio Salado BEFORE you can take this test online.
- Students must complete the portion in order to receive their Maricopa Student ID number. This is an 8 digit number generated by Rio Salado. It is NOT their Corona del Sol school ID. They will also receive their MEID number. Please keep both numbers safe and secure.
- The Ed Ready student guide is also linked here.
- Students will select the Reading test.
