The Next-Generation ACCUPLACER test is an assessment test that is used for measuring students’ readiness for college courses in reading, writing, and mathematics. The Next-Generation ACCUPLACER uses computer–adaptive technology and the questions testers see are based on their skill level depending on how previous questions are answered. So the testers response to each question drives the difficulty level of the next question. The Next-Generation ACCUPLACER is a nationally used placement test, so students may take it any where in the United States and have the scores sent to Daytona State.
There are 4 main sub sections on the Accuplacer test:
- Quantitative Reasoning, Algebra, And Statistics (QAS) (20 questions)
- Reading (20 questions)
- Writing (25 questions)
- Advanced Algebra and Functions
Accuplacer does NOT permit the use of personal calculators on the Math portion of the placement test.
