Placement Test Format

The SLCC ACCUPLACER Test is a computer-based, multiple-choice test that assesses your aptitude in reading, writing, and mathematics. The SLCC placement test is comprised of four sections, each of which contains 12 – 20 questions:

  • Reading Comprehension
  • Arithmetic
  • Elementary Algebra
  • College-Level Math

  • You will be tested on the basics of each topic. The test is not timed, which means you can take your time and spend as much time as you need to answer each question. It generally takes students between 1.5 and 2 hours to complete the test.

    The SLCC ACCUPLACER is given on a walk-in basis every weekday at SLCC Testing Services in various locations: South City, Taylorsville Redwood, Jordan Campuses, and the West Valley Center.
