Testing Center Rules and Conditions


Rules and Conditions

If I’m here to take the ACCUPLACER test, I understand that it is administered to obtain information to place me in the appropriate course or determine the need for developmental work. Each section takes approximately one half hour to complete, however the test is not timed.

I agree to place ALL of my belongings in a locker during my test session, including jackets, hats, scarves, sunglasses (unless required by religion or medical condition).

I agree not to bring any electronic devices (cell phones, etc.) in the testing room, and that I will silence or power off all of these devices before starting the test. Please notify your contacts that you will not be available during testing time. We also cannot have unsupervised children in the Testing Center.  Please make care arrangements accordingly.

I understand that I cannot have any food in the testing room. I may bring a drink in the room, but it must be left on the testing supply table.

Calculators are not permitted in the testing room unless specified by the proctor. The ACCUPLACER test has a calculator that appears on the computer.

I agree to use only the testing software designated by the proctor and no other computer applications, including, but not limited to Microsoft Office, and the internet.

I agree not to communicate with other examinees or other individuals other than the test administrators during the test.

I understand that I cannot take any assessment materials including scratch paper or notes out of the Testing Center, and that I will hand scratch paper to the proctor at the end of testing.

I understand that as a CCA student taking the ACCUPLACER, I can take this test only two times within three years, that the first test costs $10 and that retests cost $5 per section per exam. NOTE: Please see separate CLEP/DSST rules.

I understand that all test questions and other test materials are the property of the testing companies and/or their contractors and have been developed at great cost. I further understand that the materials must be kept confidential and secure from disclosure. These materials are not available to me outside of the test administration, either before or after the test administration.

You have to wait THREE (3) DAYS (72 hours) before you can re-test on ANY SECTION of the ACCUPLACER and/or you can attend the ACCUPLACER WORKSHOP before you re-test.
