English Assessment from a remote location

Clark is now offering students the opportunity to take the Accuplacer English assessment from home.  Accuplacer is one of our multiple measures for English placement.

Please view the many ways to place for English. If you feel Accuplacer is the best way to place yourself into an English class, it is an estimated 2-hour reading and writing assessment. You may sign up on the Assessment home page under More Information.
