    ACCUPLACER is a suite of tests that determines your knowledge in math, reading and writing as you prepare to enroll in college-level courses. The ACCUPLACER tests use a multiple-choice format. There is no time limit on the tests.  Your response to each question drives the difficulty level of the next question. No one passes or fails the ACCUPLACER test. The Accuplacer is primarily used as a tool for registration at a 2-year college and for admittance to college-level courses offered in high school.   Additional information on ACCUPLACER and practice test questions can be found on the CollegeBoard website.
