Why ACCUPLACER Matters
ACCUPLACER tests make sure you get placed in classes that are right for you so you don’t waste time or money taking courses you don’t need.
Colleges use ACCUPLACER to assess your skill levels in reading, writing, and math to determine if you’re ready to take courses that will earn you credits at that school. If you show proficiency in a subject, you won’t have to take developmental courses and can start earning credits right away that count toward a degree or certificate.
The ACCUPLACER web-based study app features official practice tests you can take on a computer, smartphone, or tablet. You'll get answer explanations to increase your understanding, and because the sample tests are similar to the real thing, you'll know what to expect on test day.
Skills Insight™ statements show you exactly what skills you’ve mastered and which you may need to improve to be ready for a credit-bearing course. Knowing where you stand in a given subject will help you plan your course schedule and move successfully through college.
