ACCUPLACER is basically a tool to help educators and students accurately measure any student’s academic skills. The information from the tests helps the students, their parents, and academic advisors to determine proper course placement for them. The tests are not “pass” or “fail” but rather a tool to help make sure that students are placed in the courses most appropriate for their academic skills in reading, English, Math, and computers.
For students who have learned English as a second language, an ACCUPLACER ESL Reading Skills test is available. Accuplacer.com also provides extensive information about other tests specifically designed for ESL students, including ACCUPLACER ESL Language Use, Sentence Meaning, WritePlacer, and Listening tests.
Additional resources on the ACCUPLACER website include Tips for Taking the ACCUPLACER Test, as well as information on planning for college, finding the right college, applying to college, and paying for college.
