Testing

ACCUPLACER tests your knowledge in math, reading, and writing.  These tests help identify your strengths and needs in each subject area. ACCUPLACER interactive online learning tools (/students/prepare-for-accuplacer) are available to help sharpen your skills.  Your academic adviser at UAHT will use your ACCUPLACER test results along with information about your academic background, goals, and interests to help you take courses that match your skill level and give you the best opportunities for success.

 

How Does ACCUPLACER Work?
Thanks to ACCUPLACER’s online format, the test questions are based on your responses to each question you’ve already answered.  Questions increase or decrease in difficulty depending on your answers as you work through the test.  ACCUPLACER tests are untimed, so you can move at a comfortable pace.  It’s important to give yourself enough time to do your best and complete the test because your results are the key factor in determining the courses you can take.  Your results will be available immediately after you take the test.  It’s a good idea to ask your academic adviser about your college’s or school’s testing policies and procedures.  That way, you’re prepared and can plan accordingly.

 

Students must have a valid photo ID or their UAHT student ID prior to testing.  Concurrent High School students without a valid photo ID must use the UAHT Request with the counselor or principal’s signature.

using the scoring reports.  Data analysis includes scoring in subparts of the assessment; individual scores
positioned within school, state and national statistics; mean scores; and standard deviations.  The SOCAT (NOCTI) is administered to students in five technical areas the end of their program of study: Industrial Electricity, Industrial Maintenance, Heating and Air Conditioning, Diesel Technology, and Welding.
