Placement Testing

The placement test (ACCUPLACER) is an untimed computerized assessment in math and English that Sinclair uses to ensure that you enroll in classes that are right for you. The test is a tool that gives you a starting point in your coursework.

Academic Testing

Academic testing is available for distance learning students, students who have been approved to make up a classroom test and students requiring accommodations who are registered with Disability Services. 

Important Information

Photo Identification
A valid state/government issued ID or active Tartan Card is required for academic and placement testing.

Cell Phone and Electronic Device Policy
In consideration of others and for testing security purposes, you are required to show us that you have powered off your cell phone or electronic device before entering the testing lab.

Midterms and Finals
During midterms and finals, please anticipate longer than usual wait times for academic tests. Wait times during these periods can range from 30 minutes to an hour. Please remember to allow enough time to compensate for the longer than usual wait time.
