The Accuplacer test is taken online. It is usually taken at the student’s prospective college or university or at a testing center with a proctor. The test is not timed, so students should not rush through any questions. The average time taken to finish the test is 90 minutes. The test is adaptive, meaning that the student’s answer to a question will determine his or her next question. This adaptability ensures that the test is given at an appropriate, personalized level. Accordingly, every test-taker gets a unique test. Students may not skip or eliminate questions and might have to make educated guesses when they do not know an answer to a question.
