ACCUPLACER is a suite of tests that determines your knowledge in math, reading and writing as you prepare to enroll in college-level courses.  ACCUPLACER is used to identify your strengths and weaknesses in each subject area and to help you improve your skills through interactive online learning tools.  The results of the assessment, in conjunction with your academic background, goals and interests, are used by academic advisers and counselors to place you in the appropriate college courses that meet your skill level.

ACCUPLACER test questions are based on your responses to previous questions.  Questions will either increase or decrease in difficulty depending on how you respond.  ACCUPLACER tests are untimed; however, it is important to allow yourself enough time to complete the test since test results are a key factor in determining the course(s) you can enroll in.  ACCUPLACER test results are available immediately following your test.  Before you take ACCUPLACER, make sure to ask the guidance counselor about your the school's testing policies and procedures.
