Best Approach to Success

Log in. Log in and out of the Math Lab for each visit.

Eliminate distractions. Place your cell phone on silent or vibrate. If you must take a call, please step outside the Lab.

Be prepared. Attend classes, take good notes, and complete or attempt homework assignments.

Don’t wait until the last minute before a test to get help. The Math Lab is open 5 days a week. By appointment.

Bring important materials. Textbooks, class notes, syllabus.

Work out problems before asking for help. If the tutor can see your work, they will be better able to help you find mistakes.

Utilize your resources. The Math Lab offers access to computers, calculators, and resource materials in addition to free tutoring.

Be considerate. Please be polite and respectful of those around you. This is a safe space for everyone.

Accuplacer Exam

The ACCUPLACER Exam tests your knowledge in mathematics and is taken by students to determine which math class is the best fit for their skill level. Students may take the ACCUPLACER exam up to two times with at least one month between​ testing. By taking the ACCUPLACER, you could save TIME and MONEY because you could potentially test out of both USM 090 (University Studies Math) and MATH 104 (Intermediate Algebra). 

Which ACCUPLACER Exam do I need to take?
The Quantitative Reasoning, Algebra, and Statistics test assesses a range of topics including computing with rational numbers, applying ratios and proportional reasoning, creating linear expressions and equations, graphing and applying linear equations, understanding probability and sets, and interpreting graphical displays.

The ACCUPLACER Quantitative Reasoning, Algebra, and Statistics placement test has 20-multiple choice questions. While you do not need a calculator to solve these problems, a calculator is available for some questions. If a question allows for the use of a calculator, an icon will appear for you to select the type of calculator you want to use. Not all questions will have this option.

Accuplacer Study Resources:

1. Practice with the free study app. Click Here to access the study app. Click on the "Get the Study App" icon on the right of the page, create an account, and start practicing!

  • The free ACCUPLACER study app features official practice tests in each subject that you can take on your computer, smartphone, or tablet. The format is just like the real ACCUPLACER test, and you'll get immediate feedback with answer explanations for both correct and incorrect answers. 

2. Take the 20-multiple choice practice exam created by College Board. Click Here to access the pdf. 

3. Need additional help? Schedule an appointment with me via your Navigate account!

Verify Computer Requirements to Take the Exam Virtually: 

College Board Examity will administer your ACCUPLACER test using their remote proctoring service. However, you must meet the computer requirements to take the exam virtually.
