Facts about Placement Tests

State law requires that the college use the score you receive on a placement test to place you in specific math and/or English classes.

They are NOT pass/fail. It is simply scored to see which classes would be most helpful to you in your college career. They will determine whether you begin taking… 

  • Classes with credit that will apply to your degree, or 
  • “Refresher courses” to build your skills. 
Both the ACCUPLACER and COMPASS tests are computerized and adaptive.
  • If you answer a question correctly, the computer will give you a similar or harder question. 
  • If you answer a question incorrectly, the computer will give you an easier question. 

Students who have not practiced grammar, factoring, or computation are often placed into development or “refresher” courses.
