Once a student completes the admissions process, many will be required to take a Placement Test. Ogeechee Technical College utilizes Next-Generation ACCUPLACER as its primary state-approved assessment instrument for testing applicants for program readiness. All applicants are encouraged to submit any previous testing scores available (SAT, PSAT, ACT, GED, ASSET, COMPASS, Classic ACCUPLACER) before arranging an appointment to take the entrance exam.
ACCUPLACER consists of a series of four tests, ranging from 20-25 questions each: Reading, Writing, Arithmetic, and Quantitative Reasoning, Algebra, and Statistics. This test is an untimed, multiple-choice test given by computer with questions that increase or decrease in the 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.
