What is the Next-Generation ACCUPLACER?

STLCC uses Next-Generation ACCUPLACER.

These placement tests more effectively help institutions place students in classes that match their skill level, and include texts and tasks encountered in first-year college courses. The new tests:

  • Align to the same content domain continuum as the SAT Suite of Assessments
  • Help institutions improve course placement accuracy
  • Reflect the changing landscape of higher education with math sequences aligned to clear pathways
