The Office of Testing is responsible for tests given to entering students for the purpose of admission and placement and to professionals for certification purposes. This is a required step in the admissions process for all applicants. The purpose of placement testing is to determine your current knowledge level. Our goal is to place you in appropriate courses that will increase your chances of success and program completion.
South Georgia Technical College utilizes ACCUPLACER as its primary state approved assessment instrument for testing applicants for program readiness. ACCUPLACER consists of a series of four tests, ranging from 12-20 questions each: Sentence Skills, Reading Comprehension, Arithmetic/Pre-Algebra, and Elementary Algebra. This test is an untimed; multiple choice test given by computer with questions that increase or decrease in degree of difficulty as you answer the questions. The results of this test, which are available immediately following your test, help your advisor determine the best course of action for your success when paired with information about your academic background, goals, and interests.
SGTC offers the Accuplacer NextGen test by appointment Monday –Friday in the Testing Lab on the Americus Campus and the Cordele Campus.
