ACCUPLACER Entrance Exam

ACCUPLACER tests your knowledge in math, reading and writing. Thanks to ACCUPLACER’s online format, the test questions are based on your responses to each question you’ve already answered. Questions increase or decrease in difficulty depending on your answers as you work through the test. ACCUPLACER tests are untimed, so you can move at a comfortable pace. Your results will be available immediately after you take the test.

Here at Texas A&M University–Central Texas, the ACCUPLACER exam is an approved alternative to the Texas Higher Education Assessment (THEA) that the Teacher Education Program requires for admission to their program. For more information about the Curriculum & Instruction THEA requirement please visit their webpage.

Preparing for the ACCUPLACER®

Sharpening your academic skills by answering sample test questions in reading, writing, and math can lead you to improve and can help boost your confidence when you take the actual tests. This exercise is especially helpful if you’ve been away from school for more than a year.
