What is the Next Generation Accuplacer exam? 
The Accuplacer exam is a computerized test that evaluates students' reading, math and English skills to place them in the appropriate college courses by assessing their skills and knowledge. 

What is on the test and how long is it?

While the test is not timed, it is recommended to set aside at least one and a half to two hours if you are taking the whole thing. There are three sections: 

  • Reading | 20 multiple-choice reading comprehension questions.
  • WritePlacer | 300 to 600 word essay related to the given topic. OR Writing | 20 multiple-choice grammar-related questions.*
  • Quantitive Reasoning, Algebra and Statistics (QAS) | 20 multiple-choice algebra questions.
*Students can take either the Writing or WritePlacer portion. If they receive a low score on one, they are then able to take the other portion to see if they are eligible to "place out" of remedial courses. When signing up for the Accuplacer, students are able to sign up for both sections, although if their score is high enough, they do not need both. While many schools only accept the writing portion, ASU-Beebe has chosen to accept both.

How much does the test cost? 
The Accuplacer test costs $15 whether the examinee takes one or all subjects. *Please note that if you take only the Accuplacer reading test solely to apply to the LPN or RN programs, the cost is only $5.
