The Accuplacer is the placement test we use at Milwaukee Area Technical College to determine which classes new or prospective students should take during their first semester here. We need to know what you already know in order to best place you in classes. We don't want you wasting time taking classes that cover material you already learned. On the flip side, we want to make sure you take classes for which you are properly prepared. But ...
Just as with any test, taking it cold — without any prep — results in poorer results than you deserve. We in Tutoring Services want you to succeed, so we are offering free Accuplacer tutoring at the Downtown Milwaukee Campus to anyone interested in taking the test here at MATC. (We are open during the regular semester and closed during breaks.)
Our tutors have taken the Accuplacer as part of their training, so they know exactly what subjects are covered. They will help you refresh your memory and brush up on the skills and knowledge you already possess but haven't used since you were last in school. Further, if you have taken the test in the past but want to improve your scores, you can tell our tutors specifically what you want to cover during tutoring sessions.
You can also practice the Accuplacer on your own — the more practice, the better! Ask our tutors for resources you can use to improve your skills.
When you are ready, sign up to take the Accuplacer, administered in S215. Call the Testing Center at 414-297-6233 with questions about scheduling.
