ACCUPLACER  Concepts Tested
Arithmetic Test
17 questions are administered divided into 3 types containing the following concepts:
1. Operations with whole numbers and factions . Topics
included are addition, subtraction ,
multiplication, division, recognizing equivalent factions and mixed numbers, and
estimating.
2. Operations with decimals and percents. Topics included are addition,
subtraction,
multiplication, division with decimals. Percent problems, recognition of
decimals, fraction
and percent equivalencies, and problems involving estimation are also given.
3. Applications and problem solving. Topics included are rate, percent, and
measurement
problems, simple geometry problems, and distribution of a quantity into its
fractional parts.
Questions from all three categories are always presented
to the student although the number
of questions from each category varies with the student's skill level. For
example, if the
student's responses show minimal arithmetic skills, presenting too many
applications problems
is pointless. On the other hand, a student exhibiting good skills with whole
numbers and
fractions will be presented with more of these types of problems. Thus, the
proportion of
questions in the various categories will automatically vary according to the
student's
responses.
Whole numbers and fractions  3144% of test 
Decimals and percents  3138% of test 
Applications and problem solving  2531% of test 
Elementary Algebra Test
12 questions are administered divided into 3 types containing the following concepts:
1. Operations with integers and rational numbers,
computation with integers and negative
rational numbers, the use of absolute values , and ordering. These questions test
minimal
skill levels of the student.
2. Operations with algebraic expressions tests minimal
skill levels using evaluation of simple
formulas and expressions, and adding and subtracting monomials and polynomials.
At all
sill levels, questions are provided involving multiplying and dividing monomials
and
polynomials, the evaluation of positive rational roots and exponents,
simplifying algebraic
fractions and factoring.
3. Solution of equations , inequalities, and word problems.
As with the Arithmetic Test, few
questions from this category are presented to the student unless he or she shows
skill in
this area. When a high degree of competence is indicated, questions from this
category
include solving linear equations and inequalities, the solution of quadratic
equations by
factoring, solving verbal problems presented in an algebraic context, including
geometric
reasoning and graphing, and the translation of written phrases into algebraic
expressions.
Signed Numbers and rational numbers  817% of test 
Algebraic Expressions  4267% of test 
Equations, inequalities, and word problems  1750% of test 
CollegeLevel Mathematics Test
This test enables institutions to place students into
intermediate algebra, college algebra, precalculus,
and introductory calculus courses.
20 questions are administered divided into 6 types containing the following concepts:
1. Algebraic operations including simplifying rational
algebraic expressions, factoring and
expanding polynomials, and manipulating roots and exponents.
2. Solutions of equations and inequalities including the solution of linear and
quadratic
equations and inequalities, systems of equations, and other algebraic equations.
3. Coordinate geometry including plane geometry, the coordinate plane, straight
lines,
conics, sets of points in he plane, and graphs of algebraic functions.
4. Applications and other algebra topics including complex numbers , series and
sequences, determinants, permutations and combinations, factorials, and word
problems.
5. Functions including questions involving polynomial, algebraic, exponential,
and
logarithmic functions .
6. Trigonometry including trigonometric functions.
