 The Official ACCUPLACER iPhone App Launching This November

ACCUPLACER® continues its tradition of excellence and innovation with the launch of the ACCUPLACER iPhone app in November.

The app introduces students to the test-taking experience, featuring interactive practice tests for ACCUPLACER Arithmetic, Elementary Algebra, College-Level Math, Reading Comprehension and Sentence Skills tests. For only $1.99, students can test their skills and become familiar with the style and content of questions asked on an ACCUPLACER test. The app also helps students correct their misconceptions, leading to better preparation. After selecting an answer from the multiple-choice options, students receive immediate feedback and a detailed explanation of the correct response.

The ACCUPLACER iPhone app will be offered exclusively through Apple’s iTunes Store and will be compatible with the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad.



 
   

Launching Jan. 2, 2012

Colleges and universities continue to seek new ways to increase student persistence, retention and completion. In response to the growing challenge of student remediation and the need for a comprehensive student readiness evaluation system, ACCUPLACER, in partnership with Pearson’s MyFoundationsLab, has expanded its vision for diagnostics, online intervention and customized placement.

ACCUPLACER//MyFoundationsLab, launching Jan. 2, 2012, is a solution to enhance college preparedness and student success. It identifies strengths and weaknesses for each student and builds a personalized learning path linking students to tutorials, interactive instruction and practice exercises with instant feedback to master core concepts for college and career readiness.

For more information, download the ACCUPLACER//MyFoundationsLab brochure (.pdf/1.03MB Requires Adobe Reader; latest version recommended) or contact your Senior Assessment Manager. To find out who your institution’s SAM is, please refer to your region on this map (.pdf/206KB).
