What is the ACCUPLACER Exam?

The ACCUPLACER Exam is a web-based assessment tool that evaluates reading, writing, and mathematics skills. The ACCUPLACER test is commonly used as a college placement tool because it effectively demonstrates level of preparedness for college coursework.

At Goodwin College, the ACCUPLACER test is part of the admissions process for any degree or diploma-granting program.

ACCUPLACER Exam Overview

The ACCUPLACER is an untimed multiple-choice test. It is computer adaptive, meaning that the test administers questions based on how the test-taker performs on previous questions. The ACCUPLACER is graded on a scale of 20-120.

At Goodwin College, students take all sections of the ACCUPLACER:

  • Elementary Algebra (12 questions)
  • Arithmetic (17 questions)
  • Reading Comprehension (20 questions)
  • Sentence Skills (20 questions)

ACCUPLACER scores are available immediately after the test is completed and are used to determine first semester courses during the admissions process.
