Accuplacer Remote

DISTANCE or  REMOTE ACCUPLACER

Remote Accuplacer tests are available to testers who live outside the Anchorage area and are unable to physically test at the UAA Testing Center.   We require ALL testing be done in a proctored setting.

No tester is allowed to take the test without the supervision of an approved proctor. This ensures the integrity of the students' test scores and the security of the ACCUPLACER tests.

There are two options for taking your Accuplacer test via remote.

Option 1. 

    1. Find a qualified proctor by contacting a local educational institution or military facility to determine if qualified test center personnel are willing to administer the ACCUPLACER tests to you in their facility. A qualified proctor must be:

        • Familiar with accepted practices for administering standardized test

        • Has no vested interest in the tester's scores

        • Is not related to the tester

        • Is employed by an educational institution

    2. Find a proctor, setup a tentative test date with the proctor and ask the proctor to complete the Proctor Security Agreement 

    3. Next students complete the Remote Accuplacer registration and payment process here    

    4. After receiving the proctor security agreement and student registration, UAA testing staff  will  verify the identity of the proctor and provide the proctor with a password and instructions for administering the ACCUPLACER tests.

      Remote ACCUPLACER tests are not available for same day registration and processing.
