While ACCUPLACER© tests are administered at many colleges and learning centers, Towson University has specific procedures that the university requires when administering the reading placement test.
If you experience technical issues administering the test, please click on System Requirements to see if the workstation meets "Pass" for all categories or call 1-866-607-5223. System Requirements link is located on the ACCUPLACER® Login screen and the Administer Test screen.
Print score report and give it to the student. Some students are eligible for a retest according to our Retest Policy. Students must request permission to retest in writing to placementtesting AT_TOWSON. If approved, students will be emailed a confirmation to retest.
If the screen freezes during the exam, contact ACCUPLACER® Help Desk.
If the computer stops working or “seems” to stop working, do the following: Check the status bar at the bottom of the screen to see if there are two windows open - sometimes students alt-tab over to the wrong window.
If the problem is not the wrong window, close the exam screen (you should return to the testing options page), choose Manage Open Test Sessions, enter student's I.D., first and last name, and perform search. The test will resume at the point the student left off.
If you have difficulties with usernames or passwords during the testing session, please call 410-704-2291 or email placementtesting AT_TOWSON from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. on weekdays.
