Accuplacer Placement Exam

ACCUPLACER is a suite of computer adaptive placement tests that measure students’ knowledge in math, reading and writing as they prepare to enroll in college-level courses. Placement scores help academic advisors recommend courses that are appropriate for students based on their strengths and needs in each subject matter.

Students with SAT or ACT scores should submit those scores to the Admissions Office before scheduling to take the ACCUPLACER exam. Documentation of minimum SAT (Math 400/Verbal & Critical Reading 430) or ACT (Math 17/English 17) scores might exempt students from ACCUPLACER placement testing.

Preparing to Take Accuplacer

We strongly recommend that future students prepare before testing as their performance on this exam will determine the ability or inability to take college level courses. The scores that are required for placement into college-level courses at AMSC are: Elementary Algebra-67; Reading Comprehension-61; WritePlacer-5.

Practice materials may also be obtained from AMSC’s Center for Academic Success located on the 3rd floor of the Library/Administration Building - BLDG. 600.

ACCUPLACER has also developed a web-based study app to help students become familiar with the style and content of questions in ACCUPLACER tests. The app provides access to interactive sample questions and immediate explanations to correct and incorrect answers. The web-based study app is free and can be used on either a computer or a Smartphone
