4/25/20 VIRTUAL PERT UPDATE

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is Screen-Shot-2020-04-25-at-12.37.17-PM.png

The PERT exam is the Post-secondary Education Readiness Test and its results determine eligibility and placement levels for the courses.  Average test duration is about 2 hours, but there is no time limit.

Students have options for when and where to take the PERT, but the first attempt is offered for free wherever they go:  students can take the exam at a PHSC campus or at LOLHS. 

  1. At PHSC:  Each PHSC campus has different options for testing – some require registering and others are just walk-in (Porter campus at Wiregrass – walk-in Mon-Thu 8am-4:30pm).
  2. At LOLHS:  it is a two-day, after-school exam given on Tuesday March 10th and Thursday March 12th. Students MUST attend both sessions.  To register, scan the QR code in Student Services.

STUDY GUIDES AVAILABLE FOR PERT TEST:

  • Summer 2020 Dual Enrollment Application window: 3/23-5/10
  • Fall 2020-2021 Dual Enrollment Application window: 5/11

If students pass the PERT, they will need to drop off their scores with the Student Services Secretary Ms. Canter. Ms. Pinsky will call students down to review options and all the next steps.

  1. LOLHS offers DE courses on our campus — See course card presentations for more info on DE from the week of 2/21-2/26. Courses offered at LOLHS:
    1. English: ENC1101+ENC1102.
      1. After completion of ENC1101, students could choose ENG2103 World Cinema + LIT1020 Short Fiction. Some students who have ENC1101+1102 junior year choose World Cinema & Short Fiction their senior year.

    1. students choosing PHSC online or PHSC-campus classes must have a PHSC off-campus period in their LOLHS schedule for each online/PHSC course. Students cannot be on campus during those periods (typically PHSC Off-Campus is either a 1st period or 6th period).
    2. Students cannot take virtually or at PHSC-campuses any course that is offered AT LOLHS.
