“En Broward College Ecuador mejoré mucho mi inglés gracias a los profesores con los que contaban y encontré una universidad para transferirme.”
Alejandro Gómez, Monmouth College (Transferred 2015)
Effective March 2011, Broward College transitioned to the Postsecondary Education Readiness Test (PERT), Florida’s new college placement test, as the primary placement mechanism. The PERT identifies appropriate course placement (developmental education through college credit) in Reading, Writing, and Mathematics. There are 30 questions per placement subtest, and the scaled scores range from 50-150.
