ACCUPLACER (FEAT, IE, IM etc)

Baccalaureate Honors students at Forman Christian College take ACCUPLACER tests for a variety of reasons, including admissions, Intensive English Academic Program (IEAP) final exam, and Competency Exams.

Admissions

Students applying for University admission to BA/BS (Hons), BS in Computing (BIT, BCS, BSSE), BS Business and BS Biotechnology are required to take the Forman Entrance Admissions Test (FEAT), which is comprised of three tests: ESL Language Use (grammar), ESL Reading Skills, and Arithmetic (whole numbers and fractions, decimals and percents, applications and problem-solving). Satisfactory performance on the FEAT is necessary for admission. Scores will also be used to determine placement into Mathematics courses.

IEAP

Because English is the language of instruction at Forman Christian College, all students need to be proficient in English to thrive here. We offer a developmental English program for students who are weak in English. Based on their English scores on the FEAT ACCUPLACER, some students will be offered provisional admission to the university and be required to enroll in the year-long IEAP to improve their English reading, listening, writing, and speaking skills. At the completion of each semester of IEAP, students take four ACCUPLACER tests (plus a spoken test that is not part of ACCUPLACER) to determine their English proficiency: ESL Language Use (grammar), ESL Reading Skills, ESL Listening, and WritePlacer ESL.

Competency Exams

Baccalaureate Honors students must pass five competency exams to graduate.  Two of these exams are taken online through ACCUPLACER and offered periodically throughout the academic year (see academic calendar for dates of the exams and for registering for the exams). The Written English Competency Exam is comprised of the ESL Language Use (grammar) and the WritePlacer essay. For the Quantitative Skills Competency Exam, students take an extended 40-question diagnostic version of the Arithmetic test. See the study guide for more information about the Competency Exams.
