Registering for the Accuplacer Next-Gen Reading Exam
Students whose scores on the ACCUPLACER Next Generation Reading exam are less than 250 will be required to register for GEN 105, Special Topics in Supplemented College Reading during their first academic year.
There are curently 4 options for taking the Accuplacer at the University of Louisville.
The READING Accuplacer test has 20+ questions that emphasize the meaning of words in extended contexts and how word choice shapes meaning, tone, and impact. To place out of the GEN 105 Reading Intervention course, you must score 250 or higher.
NO SHOW POLICY:
Since there are a limited number of Accuplacer sessions, once you schedule your appointment time, reschedule at least 48 hours prior to your appointment to avoid the NO SHOW penalty. If you miss your appointment time or are over 15 minutes late, you MUST reschedule your testing appointment with Examity and will be required to pay their $25 testing fee.
Students are allowed to retest on Accuplacer once advised by their advisor/testing staff about their scores and corresponding course placement. You may retest on either/both the Math or Reading Accuplacer.
The testing fee will be collected upon each administration according to the option used for testing
SCORE EXPIRATION POLICY:
Students with SAT, ACT, KYOTE or Accuplacer scores older than one year should register to take the Accuplacer for a more accurate math course placement.
