Testing Center

The Testing Center at Academic Support currently offers three exams for students:

 

The CollegeBoard ACCUPLACER

The Accuplacer is available for incoming Stritch students; the test assists in the evaluation of student skill level and placement of students in appropriate courses.


The College Level Examination Program (CLEP) Test

CLEP assesses college-level skills and knowledge in a variety of subject areas so that students may have an opportunity to earn credit in certain subjects without taking college courses.
 

WebCAPE Language Proficiency Test

WebCAPE is a computer-adaptive placement exam that assesses students' proficiency to help with accurate placement in college language courses (including Spanish, French, German, Russian, ESL (English), Chinese, & Italian).

CollegeBoard ACCUPLACER

Test Format

Accuplacer has six parts: Arithmetic, Elementary Algebra, College-Level Math, Sentence Skills, Reading Comprehension, and WritePlacer. Speak with your Admissions Counselor to determine if you are required to take the entire placement test, or if you are only required to take specific portions.

Accuplacer tests are held on campus and are available at the Brookfield and Madison sites by appointment. Completing all sections of the test may take up to four hours. To sign up for the test, you must contact your Admissions Counselor.
