ACCUPLACER tests your knowledge in math, reading, and writing. These tests help identify your strengths and needs in each subject area.   Test questions are based on your responses to each question you’ve already answered. Questions increase or decrease in difficulty depending on your answers as you work through the test. ACCUPLACER tests are untimed, so you can move at a comfortable pace.


Remote Accuplacer tests are available to testers who live outside the Anchorage area and are unable to physically test at the Advising and Testing Center. We require all testing to be done in a proctored setting and have created two options:

Option 1 (ACCUPLACER REMOTE)  allows students to take the test with a proctor in their location at an educational institution or military facility.

Option 2 (ACCUPLACER REMOTE ONLINE)  is a secure online proctoring service that allows students to take their exams at a time that is convenient for them, and in the comfort of their own home or designated location.  This type of proctoring can be utilized anytime/anywhere 24 hours a day and 7 days of the week.  Once you complete the registration process you will be sent a voucher number  and a link with instructions on how to take the test.  Please note there is an additional $25.00 fee for the virtual proctor.
