The English as a Second Language (ESL) Accuplacer measures the student's skill-level in grammar, writing, and reading comprehension.

You need to take this test if English is not your primary language or you have not been using it on a daily basis for a long time. Your ESL scores will help you and your academic advisor decide what classes you will take as you begin your study at CCA. Your results will be shown on a computer printout for you after you finish your test.

 

Format of Test 

The ESL Accuplacer is an untimed, multiple choice, essay prompt, and computer-based test that usually takes students about 3-hours to complete the full test. 

This test includes: 

  • Part 1: Language Use and the ESL WritePlacer 
  • Part 2: Reading Skills 

ID Requirement 

A valid government issued photo ID.

Cost

There is a $5 fee per section and attempt. Fees are to be paid when you come in to test. The cashiers accept cash, debit and credit cards. 

Retest Policy

It is important to do your best when taking the test.

Students may retest after a minimum of 3 days (2 weeks recommended) and take each section twice in a three year period. It is strongly advised to prepare for your test, as you will have limited retest options.
