ACCUPLACERtests your knowledge in math, reading, and writing. These tests help identify your strengths and needs in each subject area. ACCUPLACER interactive online learning tools (/students/prepare-for-accuplacer) are available to help sharpen your skills. Your academic adviser at UAHT will use your ACCUPLACER test results along with information about your academic background, goals, and interests to help you take courses that match your skill level and give you the best opportunities for success.

Thanks to ACCUPLACERs online format, the test questions are based on your responses to each question youve already answered. Questions increase or decrease in difficulty depending on your answers as you work through the test. ACCUPLACER tests are untimed, so you can move at a comfortable pace. Its important to give yourself enough time to do your best and complete the test because your results are the key factor in determining the courses you can take. Your results will be available immediately after you take the test. Its a good idea to ask your academic adviser about your colleges or schools testing policies and procedures. That way, youre prepared and can plan accordingly.

Students must have a valid photo ID or their UAHT student ID prior to testing.

The Student Occupational Competency Achievement Test (SOCAT) is administered by the National Occupational Competency Testing Institute (NOCTI). UACCH uses NOCTI assessments as a tool to facilitate the construction of curricula and establish academic standards. Since NOCTI assessments are created by occupational experts in the specific fields, they provide national standards on which to base program improvement. Scoring reports from NOCTI provide feedback of great benefit to both UAHT and students. Faculty and administrators are able to determine strengths and weaknesses within the program of instruction by using the scoring reports. Data analysis includes scoring in subparts of the assessment; individual scores positioned within school, state and national statistics; mean scores; and standard deviations. The SOCAT (NOCTI) is administered to students in five technical areas the end of their program of study: Industrial Electricity, Industrial Maintenance, Heating and Air Conditioning, Diesel Technology, and Welding. Please contact the UAHT Testing Center for appointments, requests, or questions.
