How to Prepare for the COCC Placement Test

COCC uses Accuplacer, a computerized adaptive test that assesses students knowledge in math, reading and writing. The test is given in a multiple-choice format, and questions are chosen based on answers to the previous answers with your level of ability. All tests are untimed.

Refreshing your memory on math formulas, grammar rules, reading skills, or reviewing general information on test preparation may help you feel less anxious and more confident.

Most COCC entering students will take the Accuplacer to help determine your level in writing and math.

Relax! The Placement Test is designed to help you succeed in college, but do prepare!
