Accuplacer Retest Policy
Students are permitted to retest after working with a College Prep Center instructor for a minimum of 4 hours to review content material. CPC instructors will help determine if the student is ready to retest through any combination of Accuplacer practice, TABE assessment, and/or alternate assessment that covers the retest content areas. CPC instructors will verify the student has reviewed material for the required minimum amount of time, if not more, and has successfully completed practice materials.
ACCUPLACER tests have high test-retest reliability coefficient, a measure of consistency of scores obtained by the same person when reexamined with the same test on different occasions. This means that if students retest without review and study, there is a high probability that their scores will not change appreciably. A review of ACCUPLACER data shows that two weeks is the optimal waiting period since it allows students adequate time to locate study materials and sufficient time to review them.
Apprenticeship Testing is available only at the Wausau Campus.
- Apprenticeship test battery consists of five parts: 1. mechanical reasoning, 2. spatial relations, 3. arithmetic, 4. quantitative reasoning, algebra and statistics, and 5. reading comprehension

- Spatial Relations – The Differential Aptitude Test: Next Generation measures the ability to visualize a three-dimensional object from a two dimensional pattern, and to visualize how this object would look if rotated in space. Space relations predict success in positions that require the ability to mentally create and manipulate images derived from written plans.
