Placement tests are usually offered on a first-come-first-served basis. To qualify, you must already have taken the Basic PPL assessment, which can be administered when you entered the institute. In addition to this examination, you must have taken at least one class at an approved community college or vocational-technical high school. Please note that sometimes the ALEKS PPL examination must be begun at 5:00 PM Monday Thursday, and at any time on Friday to ensure that you have enough time to complete the examination as well.
Next, you will need to schedule a visit with a college-level placement counselor. During this visit, the counselor will evaluate your academic achievements, skills, talents, and personal interests. Your counselor will also discuss the course requirements for your next-generation placement test. You may be required to take specific courses that are not on your original list of courses. If you have missed college-level placement tests, your counselor will let you know what you need to do in order to successfully complete them.
Many students who successfully completed their first semester to take their next-generation placement tests right after graduating from college. It is common for students to take these tests around four years after they leave college. Students who take their placement tests later or even early in life, may have less time to prepare for the test. In addition to taking the placement tests quickly, you should take them seriously. It is a good idea to compile a study schedule and review them before each test.
When preparing for the placement exams, you may want to take some extra AP classes in order to prepare for the writing section. The Writing Section requires intensive analysis of written communication. To succeed in the writing section you should have excellent command of grammar, style, and punctuation. You should also be familiar with how to write relevant essay questions.
Before applying for the next-generation PPL placement test, you should decide if you are going to submit an application to a university or a local community college. Many people choose to apply to the universities because they tend to be more highly regarded than community colleges. For example, a student may be eligible for admittance to the University of Missouri because he or she was a resident of Missouri for at least five years. On the other hand, a student may not be able to join the University of Missouri due to out-of-state residency rules. The application process will probably be much easier for a community college student because their class size is smaller and there is typically less student loan debt for the borrower to repay.
Students who plan on applying for the next-generation placement exams should become familiar with their testing service provider. Your testing service will provide you with a test book, study guide, essay examples, practice tests, essay answers and grading rubrics. Students should also get a placement counselor, possibly one who has already taken the placement exams, to sit with them during class so that both students can work on reading and writing the exam. It may also be helpful for the students to take practice tests and practice writing so that when they apply for the actual test they will have a good idea of what they are supposed to write and what type of questions they will face on it.
Next-generation services for placement exams are available through most colleges in Missouri. Students should take advantage of any opportunities they are given. If a student does not qualify for the first-choice college that they choose, there is always another institution that they could apply to.
