The Accuplacer is given at no additional cost to determine which math course is best for you at Spalding. The ACT/SAT mathematics sub-score (no more than 5 years old) is used to determine the appropriate placement for incoming students in mathematics courses according to the criteria below: 

ACT ScoreMath Placement
26 and aboveMATH 106, MATH 113, MATH 115, MATH 117, MATH 120 or MATH 253 
22-25MATH 106, MATH 113 
18-21 MATH 104

The Accuplacer could place you in a higher-level math class than your ACT/SAT mathematics sub-score recommends. To register for the exam, the Accuplacer Test Request form needs to be completed which is located on the Math Lab website. Additional testing information is sent upon completing this form. Calculators are not allowed on this test.

The Praxis® tests help Kentucky educators demonstrate their knowledge of content, pedagogy and instructional skills for the classroom. These tests are important components of Kentucky's licensure and certification process and include: 

  • Praxis® Core Academic Skills for Educators (Core) — comprehensive assessments that measure the skills and content knowledge of candidates entering teacher preparation programs. The tests measure academic skills in reading, writing and mathematics deemed by teacher educators to be essential for all candidates preparing to be teachers, no matter what content area or grade-level they aspire to teach. 
  • Praxis® Subject Assessments — tests that measure general and subject-specific content knowledge that you need for beginning teaching If you have questions related to the test, email Dr. Barbara Foster,
