ACCUPLACER

ACCUPLACER is an integrated system of computer-adaptive assessments designed to evaluate students’ skills in reading, writing, and mathematics. For over 30 years, ACCUPLACER has been used successfully to assess student preparedness for introductory credit-bearing college courses. ACCUPLACER delivers immediate and precise results, offering both placement and diagnostic tests, to support intervention and help answer the challenges of accurate placement and remediation. Note: The College Board recommends two weeks (10 business days) between taking the Accuplacer. ASU-Newport will support and follow this recommendation. Any exceptions must be approved by ASU-Newport's Coordinator of Testing Services.

We will let your students know they should be watching for this communication. Scores will be provided to the students and schools via email from the NLN. We are aware that some schools have waived the exam requirement for summer and fall admissions; however, we strongly recommend that students still test to provide your program with guidance for course placement and any remediation needed to ensure student retention and success.

Distance Education Proctoring Services (DEPS) Processes

ASUN Testing Services serves as a test center for students taking courses online or through correspondence Distance Education Programs. This service is provided to non-ASUN students.
Proctoring services are available by appointment only, during our regular hours of operation.
Please call the Testing Center for an appointment.
Fee: $25 per exam
The $25 fee is due on exam day. If, after testing, examinees need to have an exam “overnighted” back to the correspondence university, we must know upon arrival, so we may complete the paperwork while examinees are testing.

UPDATES as of April 16, 2020:

ETS is pleased to announce the expanded availability of at-home testing for the GRE® General Test. As of April 2, 2020, the tests are now available in all locations where the computer-delivered tests are normally available, with the exception of Mainland China and Iran. ETS introduced at-home testing in late March to meet the needs of test takers affected by test center closures.

The GRE General Test at home is being conducted through the use of live remote proctoring serviced by ProctorU®. This high-touch, real-time human monitoring of test sessions limits the number of seats available. Prospective test takers are encouraged to register as soon as possible for the best chance to secure their preferred date and time. At this time, the at-home testing is available until test centers reopen and the situation returns to normality.

Please consult the following websites to find the latest information about at-home testing:

Thank you for your continued support of ETS testing. If you have additional questions about this information, please contact ibt_governance@ets.org
