Assessment Introduction:

Los Angeles Valley College uses The College Board's ACCUPLACER to assess students online. ACCUPLACER is computer adaptive, multiple-choice and not timed.

The purpose of the ACCUPLACER tests is to provide you with useful information about your academic skills in math, English or ESL. The results of the assessment in conjunction with your academic background and goals are used to determine what math, English or ESL course you need to take.

This is not a pass or fail test. It is very important that you do your best on these tests so that you will have an accurate measure of your academic skills. A print out of your tests scores is available upon completion of the test and your scores will immediately post on the Student Information System. 

Sample Tests are linked below.
