ACCUPLACER Classic and ACCUPLACER Next Generation
In Denver Public Schools, we believe teaching, learning, and assessment are intimately intertwined allowing teachers to focus on critical thinking skills that meet grade level standards as well as habits of mind that support the development of the whole child. Assessment is part of our strategy, allowing us to measure student success against college and career readiness standards. The assessments we utilize must be purposeful, aligned to standards, and part of a comprehensive plan that empowers students and teachers. We are committed not only to ensuring all students graduate college and career ready, but to preparing them for life and college success by increasing placement into college-level, credit-bearing courses.
In Denver Public Schools, the ACCUPLACER assessment serves a dual purpose, as a passing score gives students the opportunity to both demonstrate competency for graduation and enroll in concurrent enrollment courses. ACCUPLACER data specifically supports strategic placement into college-level courses for all students on high school and college campuses and also serves as one measure of progress monitoring toward high school graduation requirements for select cohorts of students.
