Placement Test

ACCUPLACER tests your knowledge in math, reading, and writing. These tests help identify your strengths and needs in each subject area. The DACC Academic Advisers will use your ACCUPLACER test results along with information about your academic background, goals, and interests to help you take courses that match your skill level and give you the best opportunities for success.

ACCUPLACER’s online format presents test questions that are based on your responses to each question you’ve already answered. Questions increase or decrease in difficulty depending on your answers as you work through the test. ACCUPLACER tests are untimed, so you can move at a comfortable pace. It’s important to give yourself enough time to do your best and complete the test because your results are the key factor in determining the courses you can take. Your results will be available immediately after you take the test.

We accept ACT scores, SAT score, high school transcripts/GPAs, and Accuplacer from other colleges, as long as, they are within the last 2 years. If you are transferring credits from another college, please have your transcript sent and reviewed to verify whether testing will be necessary.
