Information about Multiple Measures


Take EdReady Math or English

UHMC is using EdReady College Readiness scores to help students determine their starting course for English and Math. After you complete the initial diagnostic test you can use your score to register for classes. You can also keep working on your learning path to improve your score. When you hit a score milestone, you’ll get an email letting you know the next math or English course you have qualified for.

Submit Previously Taken Accuplacer Results

The Accuplacer Placement test is used to place students in appropriate English and Math courses, and also identifies prerequisite skill levels for certain courses and programs. (If you took the COMPASS test within the past two years and want to use those scores for placement into classes, you do not need to take the Accuplacer test.)

As of June 15th, 2020, new students without placement scores or other multiple measures will be required to take EdReady Math and English. The University will still accept Accuplacer scores taken within 2 years of entry.
