Earn College Credit Faster
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.
What is the ACCUPLACER Test?
ACCUPLACER is a series of tests that evaluate students’ skills in reading, writing, and math to help college administrators place them in courses that match their skills. The contents of the test are consistent with relevant coursework that would be expected within a student’s first year of college.
