Upon admission, if ACT/SAT scores are not available and/or do not meet minimum requirements, all degree and certificate objective students are required to take course placement tests in reading, writing, arithmetic, and elementary algebra to assess their current skills. Also, students not seeking a degree or certificate must meet these requirements before registering for any class with an applicable prerequisite. WV Northern currently uses ACCUPLACER.

ACCUPLACER is a suite of tests that determines your knowledge in math, reading and writing as you prepare to enroll in college-level courses. It is used to identify your strengths and weaknesses in each subject area and to help you improve your skills through interactive online learning tools. The results of the assessment, in conjunction with your academic background, goals and interests, are used by academic advisors and counselors to place you in the appropriate college courses that meet your skill level.

To attempt Practice Tests with sample problems, go to ACCUPLACER Sample Questions. For additional Accuplacer Test prep, get the FREE Web-Based Study App! (instructions below)

 

To access the free ACCUPLACER Web App with practice tests, follow these simple steps:

  1. Go to ACCUPLACER Practice
  2. Create a free account and login
  3. Select Classic Practice Tests

NOTE: The ACCUPLACER Web App is designed to familiarize students with the style and content of test questions found on the ACCUPLACER tests. It does not represent an actual ACCUPLACER test and is intended for practice and review only. Results are not intended to be used to determine course placement. Test results on the ACCUPLACER Web App are not intended to suggest similar performance, nor do they have any correlation to scores from tests administered on the ACCUPLACER platform.

Contact your campus to register for placement testing. Remember, if you are a transfer student or you took the ACT or SAT test, you may not need to take some or all of the parts of the ACCUPLACER Test. Contact your Campus Counselor before registering if you have any questions.

To learn more about placement testing, results, and options, please view the information from our Academic Support Center and watch the pre-test video.
