  • Complete the diagnostic test, work through lessons, and retest topics. If you want to use EdReady as a placement tool, you must earn a score of 90 or higher. 
  • Once you've earned a 90, the Testing Center will get an automatic notification with your score report. You do not need to send us your scores. We will send you an email with placement information and with the next step to make an appointment with an Advisor and register for classes.
  • Students using VA Education Benefits or Tuition Assistance may use EdReady with a score below 90 to justify enrollment in prep courses. You must export your results directly to the Testing Center. To export your scores:
    • Go to "My Account"
    • Under "Student data export" select "Download Your Data"
    • In the textbox, send a copy directly to the Testing Center: testing.center@ppcc.edu 
    • The Testing Center will let you know when your scores have been entered on your student record
