MHSA > ACCUPLACER
The ACCUPLACER® is a set of exams that quickly and accurately assess reading, writing, math, and computer skills. Maine's Career and Technical Education centers, community colleges and state universities use the ACCUPLACER® extensively to track achievement and to determine course placements.
