Tests for UAS Courses
Distance and Correspondence Classes
UAS requires that full-time students and those taking Math, English, or computer classes take a placement test to determine their class selection. UAS uses ACCUPLACER, a nationally recognized placement test. Tests are given during the Student Success Center’s testing hours.
There are 2 ACCUPLACER placement tests available and each test takes approximately one hour. Students wishing to take a placement test are strongly encourage to refresh their skills either through the Math and English tutors at the Student Success Center or through online review guides.
- The English placement test evaluates reading and grammar skills. Check out ACCUPLACER’s online study guide
- The Math placement test evaluates arithmetic, elementary algebra, and college math skills. Check out these Accuplacer Math Test Review Guides for more help!
Ask about our free diagnostic test to learn what your strengths and weaknesses are in English and math!
There’s an App for that! Accuplacer has an inexpensive iPhone App available with study material for their test.
