Placement Testing 

Piedmont Technical College’s placement test is administered through Desire2Learn (D2L), the College’s learning management system. The test measures skills in reading, writing, and mathematics to help determine which classes will be best for you. There is no time limit set for any of the sections. 

Testing is available 24/7/365 and requires an internet connection, a webcam, microphone, photo ID, and the use of the Google Chrome web browser. For more information on Hardware/Software requirements, see the Resources section below.
