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.
