your school work together to help you succeed in your educational program. ASSET helps you
identify your strengths as well as the knowledge and skills you will need in order to succeed in specific
subject areas. ASSET also helps your school use this information to guide you toward classes that
strengthen and build logically upon your current knowledge and skills.

How Does ASSET Work?

ASSET has three tests of basic skills in writing, reading, and numerical reasoning, plus more
advanced tests in algebra and geometry. The ASSET program also offers the Educational Planning
Form, which supplements your ASSET test scores by providing your institution with information about your educational needs and goals.

How Are ASSET Scores Used?
ASSET is not used like a traditional test battery. There is generally no “passing score.” Rather,
ASSET scores indicate areas in which you are strong and areas in which you may need help. Thus,
ASSET can identify problems in major subject areas
giving you the opportunity to prepare more effectively for needed courses.
