About the Exam
The Accuplacer Sentence Skills Test is used by college officials along with other materials to get an idea of your knowledge and place you within courses matching your skill level. The multiple-choice exam is composed of twenty questions, with two types of questions included. The first type of question you'll encounter will be a sentence-correction prompt asking you to select the right word or phrase for the underlined part of the sentence. The second type you'll be challenged by is construction-shift questions that ask you to select a rewritten sentence that meets the shown criteria while keeping a similar meaning as the original sentence. There is no time limit for this test.
