Accuplacer - LOEP Sentence Meaning

GENERAL INFORMATION

If you plan to take the Accuplacer as part of the Texas Success Initiative (TSI), please choose the Texas Success Initiative page.

The ACCUPLACER System is computer-adaptive, multiple-choice tests. Test scores are provided immediately after testing.

The ACCUPLACER System includes nine computer-adaptive, multiple-choice tests.
The five core tests include Reading Comprehension, Sentence Skills, Arithmetic, Elementary Algebra, and College-Level Mathematics

There are four Levels of English Proficiency (LOEP) tests designed to assess the English skills of students whose first language is not English. These tests include LOEP Reading Skills, LOEP Sentence Meaning, LOEP Language Use, and LOEP Listening.

The length of time varies from one to three hours depending on each student. However, once you have selected and confirmed your answer, you cannot return to that question.

The Levels of English Proficiency Test (LOEP) assesses the English skills of students who have learned English as a second language or who are native English speakers with limited proficiency.

LOEP Sentence Meaning
Sentence Meaning assesses the understanding of word meanings in one- or two-sentence contexts. The sentences are drawn from the content areas of natural science, history/social studies, arts/humanities, psychology/human relations, and practical situations. The areas tested are: particle verbs (or phrasal verbs), basic and important idioms, adverb/adjective phrases, basic nouns, verbs and adjectives (particularly terms of beauty, age, greatness, size), adverbs of frequency, sequence of adverbs (before, after, during), prepositions of direction and place (from, to, at, for, etc), comparatives, connectives, and commands.
