The ACCUPLACER is used by many two-year colleges to determine the placement level of students in Math, English, and Reading as established by the Arkansas State Board of Higher Education. The Freshman Assessment and Placement document identifies the scores needed on the exams to bypass developmental courses at BRTC. The test is not timed; however, it is recommended to allow approximately two (2) hours. The results of these tests will be used to place students into the proper level of Reading, Math, and English.
The ACCUPLACER test is free of charge, regardless of how many parts of the test are taken. All or part of the test may be retaken to improve scores. BRTC will accept the highest score from each area. It is recommended that students complete free tutoring sessions in Adult Education before retesting or download the free web-based study app https://accuplacerpractice.collegeboard.org/login .
Scheduled ACCUPLACER tests dates can be found on the BRTC calendar.
