Information about the ACCUPLACER
ACCUPLACER is a suite of tests that quickly, accurately, and efficiently assess reading, writing, and math skills.
- Tests are untimed and students may leave the testing room to take a break as necessary. Most students taking both English and math tests finish in about two hours.
- NO calculators are permitted on the math test, as an on-screen calculator will appear when needed.
For more information, read the ACCUPLACER Introduction on the CollegeBoard website. We strongly encourage that students review concepts in mathematics, reading, and writing in preparation for the ACCUPLACER. To prepare for the ACCUPLACER, please visit the CollegeBoard Accuplacer Store for a free web-based study app to familiarize yourself with test questions in Elementary Algebra, College-Level Math, Reading Comprehension and Sentence Skills. You will have the opportunity to take practice tests in these core content areas. Taking these practice tests will significantly improve your ability to place out of non-credit courses in math and English and into college-level, credited courses. You can also register for the app.
