Off-Site Placement Testing

This is an option for students who have been told they need to complete the Accuplacer to start classes but cannot make a separate trip to Canton.

1.  Find a suitable proctor and test site

  • Proctors may be teachers, counselors, school administrators
  • Computer with Internet access required

2.  Have proctor email testing@canton.edu with following information:

  • Student's name and Proctor’s name
  • Proctor’s title and contact information (fax, phone, and email address)
  • Preferred date and time for testing
  • Physical address where the test will be administered

The test is generated from an online website, is untimed, and must be completed in one sitting. Most students finish the exam within 1 - 1 1/2 hours.

3.  Communicate with proctor.

The proctor will have received instructions to administer the test.

*Students who require accommodations for placement testing should contact the Office of Accommodative Services after a test date has been made.
