The Accuplacer Placement Test is a computerized placement testing system designed to provide information about the academic skills of students in reading and math. The primary function of this test is to determine if students are prepared for college-level course work, or if they would require developmental courses.

Minnesota Statute 136F.302:

Subdivision 1. ACT or SAT college ready score; Minnesota Comprehensive Assessment career and college ready benchmarks. (a) A state college or university must not require an individual to take a remedial, noncredit course in a subject area if the individual has received a college ready ACT or SAT score or met a career and college ready Minnesota Comprehensive Assessment benchmark in that subject area. Only the ACT and SAT scores an individual received and the Minnesota Comprehensive Assessment benchmarks an individual met in the previous five years are valid for purposes of this section. Each state college and university must post notice of the exemption from remedial course taking on its Web site explaining student course placement requirements.

Subd. 2. Testing process for determining if remediating is necessary. A college or university testing process used to determine whether an individual is placed in a remedial, noncredit course must comply with this subdivision. Prior to taking a test, an individual must be given reasonable time and opportunity to review materials provided by the college or university covering the material to be tested which must include a sample test. An individual who is required to take a remedial, noncredit course as a result of a test given by a college or university must be given an opportunity to retake the test at the earliest time determined by the individual when testing is otherwise offered. The college or university must provide an individual with study materials for the purpose of retaking and passing the test.
