Placement Test Information

Math Placement Testing: ALEKS 

The ALEKS Math Placement test consists of 30 questions. The test starts with algebra and adjusts as students progress, so the questions will change depending on how previous questions were answered.

If students wish to retake the ALEKS test to improve their score, they should speak with an LCCC Testing Center staff member. In order to retest, students must complete a minimum of three hours of online review in their ALEKS account (personalized for them based on their first test) and there is a 24 hour waiting period following the review before they are eligible to retest.

English Placement Testing: McCann

The McCann test consists of a reading portion and a written essay. The reading test has 30 multiple-choice questions. The computer assigns a general topic for the essay.

If a student wishes to retake the McCann test to improve their score, they should speak with an LCCC Testing Center staff member.

Where/How To Test

Placement testing is available at any LCCC location: the Cheyenne campus, the Laramie campus ("ACC"), the Eastern Laramie County Outreach Center in Pine Bluffs, WY or the F.E. Warren Air Force Base (WAFB) Outreach Center.

Although there is no time limit, students should allow at least two hours to take both the ALEKS and McCann in the same day.
