The Next Generation Accuplacer is one of the exams used by Moberly Area Community College for placement into English and math courses.

Next Generation Accuplacer is an untimed, computerized test, MACC focuses on three areas of study: writing, reading comprehension, and mathematics. The Next Generation Accuplacer test is given at all MACC campus locations. (Dates and times vary, call the individual site for more information.) Remote testing is $25.

Please click on the following link to find out specific details for each exam given: https://accuplacer.collegeboard.org/educator/next-generation

Bring $15.00 for the Next Generation Accuplacer test fee. You will be asked to show photo identification at the time of the test. You are allowed to retake the Next Generation Accuplacer after waiting at least 24 hours. Space for the test fills up quickly.

Next Generation and Classic Accuplacer scores will not be accepted from any other institution.

The M.E.C.A. allows a student the opportunity to challenge and appeal his/her/their current mathematics course placement, which is based on ACT, SAT, and/or Accuplacer scores. The M.E.C.A. is a competency-based assessment which may be completed one-time-only for each course to place out of MTH010, MTH042, MTH060, or MTH095. The assessment is completed in a proctored environment with a two-hour time limit; upon completion, the assessment is scored by mathematics faculty using a skill-based rubric. There is no fee to take the M.E.C.A., and it is currently offered in two formats. Students may go to an MACC location to take a paper-and-pencil version of the M.E.C.A., or students may take the M.E.C.A. virtually using a software program which requires a desktop or laptop computer (no Chromebooks) equipped with a webcam and microphone to proctor the assessment. Students scoring proficient on the M.E.C.A. will be allowed to place out of a mathematics course and, therefore, into the subsequent mathematics course in the general education course sequence. Please see an advisor at any MACC location for details and proctor schedules related to the M.E.C.A.

Students may opt for a one-time writing appeal to demonstrate the writing (but not reading) skills necessary for LAL101 or equivalent. An advisor will schedule the student by enrolling them in the Canvas writing appeal course. The appeal is a 90-minute timed writing assignment, with a topic selected from a predefined series of options. If the appeal is granted, the student is deemed to have satisfied the minimum writing requirement for LAL101 or equivalent. Results will be communicated to the student by MACC Student Affairs. There is no charge for the writing appeal. Please see an advisor for additional details.

What is WorkKeys?

WorkKeys is a job skills assessment system measuring “real-world” skills that employers believe are critical to job success. Upon completion each student will receive an NCRC Certificate of completion which is a portable credential that demonstrates achievement and a certain level of workplace employability skills in Applied Math, Graphic Literacy, and Workplace Documents.

Applied Math

The Applied Math assessment measures critical thinking, mathematical reasoning, and problem-solving techniques for situations that actually occur in today’s workplace. While individuals may use calculators and conversion tables to help with the problems on the assessment, math skills are still needed to think them through. More Information

Graphic Literacy

Workplace graphics come in a variety of formats, but all communicate a level of information. From charts to graphs, diagrams to floor plans, identifying what information is being presented and understanding how to use it are critical to success. The Graphic Literacy assessment measures the skill needed to locate, synthesize, and use information from workplace graphics. More information

Workplace Documents

Employees need to be able to understand written text to do a job. The Workplace Documents assessment measures the skills people use when they read and use written text such as memos, letters, directions, signs, notices, bulletins, policies, and regulations on the job. More information
