Assessment News
If you or someone you know will be taking the math and English assessment tests soon, we have good news for you.  The Accuplacer Web-Based Study App is now available to all students for free! To access the web app from your PC, Mac, iPhone or Android device, go to the College Board Store and click on Accuplacer Web-Based Study App. 

The study app contains "Learn As You Go" tests that provide an explanation of correct and incorrect responses.  You can also take sample tests that let you experience what the real test will be like when you take it. You can save your work in progress and return later to finish.  When you're done, you can look at your history to identify weak areas to brush up on before your tests. 

The Accuplacer Study App provides a great way to prepare for your assessments so you do your best and place into the appropriate class for your skill level.
