Accuplacer at Lourdes
The purpose of the Accuplacer test is to assess the student's basic algebra, grammar and reading skills. The multiple-choice instrument is computerized, but no previous experience with computers is necessary. The student manipulates the computer mouse to select the answer to questions. The assessment is not timed, but generally students need two hours to complete both the English and math portions. The results are given in the form of appropriate placement into classes taught here at Lourdes. Advisors use Accuplacer to help students select classes appropriate to their skill level. For this reason we ask that students schedule the Accuplacer assessment before they meet with their advisors to register for classes. With the results, we can make better suggestions as to classes in which the student can have a reasonable expectation of success.
