Monroe Community College (MCC) offers computerized assessment testing using ACCUPLACER, a testing package produced by the College Board. All test questions are multiple choice questions. A student needs no special computer skills to take these tests;
scratch paper and pencils are provided. Personal items other than identification documents are not allowed in the testing room.
ACCUPLACER will measure your knowledge in arithmetic, elementary algebra, college-level math, reading comprehension, and sentence skills. It is a computer based assessment, and is not a pass or fail test; rather, the results will help determine what classes best fit the student and his or her academic needs.
The College offers students a variety of free or inexpensive resources to prepare for the test prior to taking it for the first time. We highly recommend students to test when they are well-rested, and only after a thorough review of the ACCUPLACER study guides.
To determine the right course selection for new students, MCC offers ACCUPLACER placement testing in math, reading and language use.
