Placement Testing
Ogeechee Technical College

Once a student completes the admissions process, many will be required to take a Placement Test. Ogeechee Technical College utilizes ACCUPLACER as its primary state approved assessment instrument for testing applicants for program readiness. If an applicant is uncomfortable with taking computerized tests, or in certain other situations, Ogeechee Technical College offers ASSET, another state approved instrument published by ACT.

ACCUPLACER consists of a series of four tests, ranging from 12-20 questions each:  Sentence Skills, Reading Comprehension, Arithmetic/Pre-Algebra, and Elementary Algebra. This test is an untimed, multiple choice test given by computer with questions that increase or decrease in degree of difficulty as you answer the questions. The results of this test, which are available immediately following your test, help your advisor determine the best course of action for your success when paired with information about your academic background, goals, and interests.

ACCUPLACER sample questions and information regarding each of the tests can be found on-line at https://accuplacer.collegeboard.org/students/accuplacer-tests.

ASSET consists of a series of four tests: Writing, Reading, Numerical Skills and Elementary Algebra. This is a paper and pencil, multiple choice test, with each section timed at 25 minutes.  Elementary Algebra tests are required for Associate Degrees and certain other programs of study. All other programs require a Numerical Skills score.
