What is the Accuplacer Reading Comprehension test?
The Accuplacer test includes 20 questions on reading comprehension. 

There are two types of questions:

a) Reading passages – These require you to read a short or long passage and answer a question based on the text.  These may include explicit statements related to the main idea, explicit statements related to a secondary idea, application, or inference.

b) Sentence relationships – These require you to name the relationship between two given sentences.  For example, a second sentence might support the first, contradict it, or reinforce the same information.

When taking the Accuplacer test, you may not use any notes.  Use of a personal calculator is not allowed; however, an on-screen “pop-up” calculator is available on some Accuplacer math items.  There is no time limit for completing the Accuplacer Test.
