Accuplacer Testing for College & Career Readiness
The Maryland College & Career Readiness and College Completion Act of 2013 requires that all public high school students participate in assessments that demonstrate readiness for college and careers in the areas of English and Math by the end of their 11th grade year.
Students who have not met standards for either subject area will be required to take the Accuplacer, a nationally recognized college placement test in the spring. A passing score on the Accuplacer is NOT a graduation requirement.
Students who already have scores from the SAT, ACT, Accuplacer (via AACC), or AP courses or who have already achieved a passing score for the PARCC English 10 and PARCC Algebra 2 exams will be exempt from this Accuplacer test session.
Support opportunities will be made available to students who will be required to take the Accuplacer and free study guides can be found online at www.aacpublicschools.org/aacps2/ccr/college.
