Taking the Accuplacer assessment?

IVY PREP MAKES SURE YOU'RE READY.

To help students maximize their chances of being placed directly into their chosen program path, Ivy Tech Community College has developed a resource called Ivy Prep. Ivy Prep is designed to make it more likely you'll perform well on the Accuplacer assessment, whether you're taking it for the first time or trying to improve.

How assessment works - and how Ivy Prep can help you succeed

To ensure you're placed in the appropriate classes, most of you are assessed through a tool called Accuplacer. The better you do on Accuplacer, the fewer remedial courses you will have to take. Maybe you won't need any! Doing well can save you lots of time and money. AND it can move you directly into the courses of your chosen program.

Missed the mark the first time you took Accuplacer? Ivy Prep can help you improve.

Ivy Prep isn't just for students taking the Accuplacer for the first time. So if you weren't satisfied with your initial results, it's worth aiming for improvement. By participating in Ivy Prep you can identify problem areas and get the support you need to achieve the best results.

Ivy Prep is currently offered at the following campuses (click your campus for more information). More campuses coming soon!

Should you consider Ivy Prep?

• Are your Accuplacer scores too low to allow placement in math at Ivy Tech?

• Were you close to the cut-off for the next higher math class?

• Do you feel you could have scored better with a little review and preparation?

• Has it been a long time since you were in school or took classes?

• Do you want to work toward completing your certificate or degree faster?

• Would you like to start classes at a higher level?

• Do you need to build confidence in your skills before beginning classes?

Ivy prep allows you to work at your own pace following a schedule that works for you. To enroll in this free assistance program, go to the Academic Advising Center. Bring the results sheet from the Accuplacer test with you; it contains your locator code.

Once you are enrolled, you will be able to work off campus on your own schedule or at any of the open labs at the Connie and Steve Ferguson Academic Building. Once you have completed the Accuplacer prescribed sections, you may retake the test for free to improve your scores and placement.

There is still time to prepare for your ACCUPLACER assessment! We’ve got a wonderful resource called Ivy Prep!

Ivy Prep is a resource for students to maximize their reading, writing and math skills prior to taking Ivy Tech’s ACCUPLACER assessment. (ACCUPLACER is only necessary if a student cannot provide appropriate scores from a SAT, ACT, PSAT test, high school credit, or other college transcript.) You need to meet certain criteria to be placed directly into your chosen program path without first taking remedial classes, so testing well is important.

Ivy Prep is a process where you are assigned an Ivy Prep week and will utilize online and in-person resources to your improve skills. Your Ivy Prep Staff will work with you to determine where assistance is needed, in which areas of study, and monitor progress.

Ivy Prep is available if you have already taken ACCUPLACER as well. If you were not satisfied with your results, you can still participate, identify problem areas, get the support needed, and assess again.
