ACCUPLACER Testing

Accuplacer® is a test often given to students to determine their readiness for college-level courses. Many students will take Accuplacer® to assess their skills in English Writing, Reading, and Math. Unlike many other tests, Accuplacer® is an adaptive test administered on computers. Many colleges will ask new students to take an Accuplacer® test to help place them in the proper courses, but some high school students may take the tests as well. As a member of the  Massachusetts Secondary Postsecondary CVTE Linkage Consortium, Old Colony has been provided the opportunity to  early ACCUPLACER  test our seniors and juniors to early-identify students who may need subject remediation. Test dates have been scheduled for October 18th, November 15th and December 13th. There is no cost for the test and it will take place during the school day. Seniors and juniors who are interested in taking the test should sign up in the Guidance Office.
