Placement Testing

BARTonline placement testing determines readiness for college level coursework. Students entering college for the first time without SAT, ACT, Accuplacer or ASSET scores must take the BARTonline Placement Exam. Students must have test scores on file if they are pursuing a certificate or associate's degree or are enrolling in a general education class requiring specific test scores. Test scores will be used to place students in the appropriate English and Math course.  Individuals requiring testing accommodations due to disability should contact or call (620) 786-1102.

If you enroll in an ENGL or MATH course with BARTonline, you will automatically be enrolled into the ENGL 100 or MATH 100 placement test. If you need to take the placement test to place into a particular course, you can access the placement test via your CANVAS account located in your MyBarton Portal (for assistance with logging in to your MyBarton Portal account, please view the Access a Canvas Course instructions).

Please note that if you do not need to take the placement test, please disregard the placement test enrollment. There is no additional fee to take the placement test.

Students taking these tests should understand the high-stakes nature of these tests in determining their placement in college classes. These tests measure academic capability and should not be confused with tests measuring intelligence or ability. Testing provides both the student and the advisor an effective tool to assure academic success. Through enrollment in proper courses, students are more likely to meet their academic goals.
