Academic Skills Assessment

Test Overview

Harford Community College uses the ACCUPLACER™  battery of tests.  This computer- adaptive test consists of Reading Comprehension, Sentence Skills (Writing), and Math modules. Depending on your experience with Algebra, you may be given either or both of the Math modules. The test, although untimed, usually takes about 1 ½ hours to complete. 

The ACCUPLACER™ test requires no real computer skill to complete. All questions are answered by simply clicking the mouse on the correct answer. You may not use your own calculator. A simple, four-function calculator will be provided. Tests begin with sample questions designed to illustrate the types of test questions the examinee will see during the test.
