ACCUPLACER Placement Testing

Placement tests are required for students who do not have an ACT score of 23 or higher in math or at least 20 in English, or whose ACT test or previous COMPASS/Accuplacer tests are more than 3 years old.

Please note: Applicants meeting criteria for Adult & Non-Traditional Freshmen are not required to provide an ACT/SAT score.

The ACCUPLACER computerized Math and English Placement Tests are for students to identify the appropriate starting level for English and Math courses. After a student completes the ACCUPLACER test, he/she will be provided a score report with his/her appropriate course requirement listed. To access study materials visit https://studentportal.accuplacer.org.

ACCUPLACER placement exams are given daily. General assessment is done on a walk-in basis; therefore, during normal Testing Center hours, students may come to have the placement test done at their leisure. A photo or valid student ID is required.

NOTE: Students will need to know their TROY Student ID number when coming to take exams. This can be found on student's schedule accessed through Trojan Web Express or on their Trojan ID card.

DSST (formerly Dantes Test)

Miller Analogies Test (MAT)

The Miller Analogies Test is a high-level mental ability test requiring the solution of problems stated as analogies. Research by psychologists on human intelligence and reasoning has found performance on analogies to represent one of the best measures of verbal comprehension and analytical thinking. Performance on the MAT is designed to reflect candidates' analytical thinking, an ability that is critical for success in both graduate school and professional life. Through analogies with content from various academic subjects, MAT scores help graduate schools identify candidates whose knowledge and abilities go beyond mere memorizing and repeating information. The analytical skills measured by the MAT are key to success in graduate school and are highly valued by graduate programs. 

For more than 50 years, the MAT has proven to be a reliable and valid test for assessing candidates for graduate school. Predictive validity studies conducted by Pearson and by independent researchers have shown positive correlations between MAT scores and subsequent success in graduate programs.
