Placement Test Info


What is the Placement Test?

All students admitted to the ABP must do the placement test so they can enroll in classes. Students cannot enroll at the ABP without taking the test. The placement test is not a pass or fail test, it is designed to help determine the level of the students in the subjects (English, Math, Computers, and Science) they will be studying at the ABP. We; however, always stress to the students to do their best on the test so they are placed in the right level in each of these subjects.

It is important to keep the three points below in mind when taking the placement test.

- The tests are taken online, after the student is admitted an email is sent the student that includes the test link and credentials needed to log onto the test.

- No Studying for these tests is required so make sure to go online and complete the test. The tests will take up to 3 hours to complete.

- Cheating on the placement test would hurt students more than it helps since you would be placed in a course higher than your ability. If suspected of cheating the test results will be cancelled and students might be asked to redo the tests, or have their acceptance revoked. 

-  Do your best on the Writing Sample and the (English, Math, and Computer) tests so you are not placed in a level lower than your ability.




- Make sure to complete All the Sections on the test, Writing Sample, English Placement, Math Placements, and Computer Placement.

- Computer Cameras must be on the whole time during the exam.
