Saint Paul College uses a Guided Self-Placement Assessment, where the student determines their placement level. To complete this guided self-placement assessment contact
email@example.com. The College does not administer the Accuplacer for English/Reading course placement.
The College uses the Math ACCUPLACER to determine math placement. There are several different mathematics assessments. Arithmetic will measure your ability to perform basic arithmetic problems, including addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions, decimals, and percent's. You’ll also solve problems that involve fundamental arithmetic concepts, including rate, measurement, and simple geometry. Elementary Algebra includes questions on operations with integers and rational numbers, operations with algebraic expressions, and solution of equations, inequalities, and word problems. College Level Mathematics is only given to those scoring high on the Elementary Algebra assessment and assesses skills in intermediate algebra through pre-calculus.
You may take additional assessments if your chosen program requires them. A test of spatial skills is given for many of the Trade programs, and a keyboarding assessment is given for many of the Business programs. Ask at the One Stop to find out what additional assessments may be needed.
