The placement test is available as a walk-in basis at DACC’s main campus Monday-Friday at 9:00 and 1:00. If you can't walk in at 9:00 or 1:00, you will need to schedule an appointment at least 24 hours in advance of when you wish to test. If you wish to test at the Hoopeston site, you need to call and schedule an appointment with the Higher Learning Center at 217-283-4170.
DACC uses ALEKS for the math placement, and Accuplacer reading and writing for the English placement. The purpose of these tests is to help determine your level of skill in one or more academic areas. The scores you receive will be used to assist in determining the most appropriate courses for you at this time based on your individual skills. This is not a pass/fail test and is only meant to help you become best prepared for future college level courses.
