Math Assessment

The UUP department uses a computerized placement assessment called Accuplacer™ to measure reading, writing, and math skills. Completing the assessment helps place students in a course level that is comfortable and meets their skill level.

There are two math assessments:

  1. Arithmetic
  2. Elementary Algebra

You will start your math assessment with the 17-question arithmetic assessment. Your arithmetic score will determine if you are ready to take the 12-question elementary algebra assessment.

NOTE: Calculators are not allowed at the math assessment, so be sure to practice without a calculator.
