Placement Exam (Accuplacer Online Assessment)

The purpose of the ACCUPLACER® tests is to assist with the determination of course placements that are appro­priate for students. Scores from the ACCUPLACER tests are intended for use in making placement decisions.

ACCUPLACER Online™ uses sophisticated technology to provide accurate and efficient measurement of students’ knowledge and skills. It uses computer-adaptive testing technology to select specific test ques­tions that are best suited for each particular test-taker. This “tailoring” of the test for each student allows for an accurate diagnosis of students’ knowledge and skills; the test uses fewer items than are typically required in traditional "paper-and-pencil" tests.

The computerized nature of the assessment also allows for instantaneous score reporting. As soon as a student finishes testing, her or his scores are available immediately. RCBC also administers Re-Test (Challenge) and ESL assessments using Accuplacer online for a small fee.
