The Accuplacer is a computerized, untimed series of tests required by all Maine Community Colleges, and is sometimes used by 4-year colleges as well.  To be accepted to a Maine Community College, usually, students will need to test in 4 or 5 areas:
-Sentence Skills
-Reading Comprehension
-Elementary Algebra
-Writeplacer (required by CMCC and EMCC)

Students are encouraged to TAKE THEIR TIME WITH THESE ASSESSMENTS. They can pause an assessment, do one at a time, and retest as needed.  WHS Guidance charges $2 per test. Free/Reduced lunch test fees are waived.

It is very important to review the ACCUPLACER before testing. There are materials in Guidance, or check out these sites for more help:
