Thank you for visiting this webpage about the Accuplacer Test and English Composition placement.

Students who did not submit SAT or ACT test scores with their ESU admissions application are required to take the Accuplacer Test to determine whether they should be enrolled in English 101, Elements of Writing, or English 103, English Composition. Because of the current COVID-19 situation, we are temporarily testing students remotely using Zoom.

To test, you will need a computer (desktop or laptop) with a webcam and audio capabilities. Other devices, such as cell phones, iPads, Surface, and other tablets, will not work. Please review these computer requirements before the test and direct technology-related questions to the Support Link on the College Board website.

You will also need to have Zoom downloaded on your computer, and this should be completed before your testing appointment.

To download Zoom, please follow these steps:

  1. Go to the Zoom website, download and install Zoom
  2. To check that Zoom was set up correctly, and use the option to join with video.
  3. Check that your computer can run Accuplacer.

At your testing session time, when you click on the link and join the meeting, the proctor will verify your ID and guide you to the Accuplacer testing page where you will begin the Reading and Writing tests.

For a more detailed list of what will be on the tests, please visit the Accuplacer College Board website.

At the end of the exam, your scores will be submitted and reviewed by the committee. The Placement Committee will then email you your results within 24-48 hours.

Important Note: If you are a student registered with OASIS (the Office of Accessible Services Individualized for Students), please be sure to provide a copy of your accommodation letter 3-4 business days before the test so we may discuss what accommodations are needed.

For questions related to OASIS services, please consult the OASIS website. OASIS may be contacted by phone at (570) 422-3954 or by email at oasis@esu.edu.
