Developmental Education Assessment

Students - Please note that this page will be updated shortly with new information about ACCUPLACER testing.  January 4 will be the last time the math placement test will be given at orientation.  Effective January 5, 2019, LSU Eunice's new Testing Center will begin testing incoming students by appointment.  Note that LSU Eunice will begin charging to take the assessment effective January 5, 2019.  This will apply to students taking it the first time.

Located in Manuel Hall room 203, LSU Eunice's Assessment Center exists to serve the placement needs of incoming students. The Assessment Center also services the needs of LSU Eunice's Modular Mathematics students.

Policies Related to Testing and Retesting

  • Student may not bring a calculator for the mathematics assessments. Calculators are provided for selected questions on the screen for mathematics assessments.
  • A waiting period of one day (24 hours) is required prior to a retest in the same subject.
  • LSU Eunice students may take each assessment the first time at no cost.
  • Assessment scores are valid for five years from the date of assessment.
  • LSU Eunice students wishing to retest within the five year period will be charged $15 per assessment. The $15 should be paid to the Business Office prior to the assessment being taken. A receipt will be used as proof of payment in the testing center.
  • LSU Eunice students are required to have a valid LSU Eunice ID in order to take assessments.
  • Continuing LSU Eunice students that have, within the last 10 years, attempted an English composition, mathematics, or reading course that appears on their transcripts are not eligible to take the placement for the purpose of skipping a course. In this case, students will be placed in the appropriate courses based on previous course success. For example, students receiving a grade in MATH 0001 within the last 10 years, may not take the placement test in an attempt to skip MATH 0001 if they were not satisfied with their grade or skip MATH 0015/0021 in an attempt to place into general education mathematics.
  • Upon the conclusion of the assessment, students are given a paper copy of their scores. LSU Eunice does not transfer assessment scores to other institutions of higher education.
  • Non-LSU Eunice students may take assessments for $20 per assessment with a photo ID such as a driver's license or another state ID (NOTE:  As of Fall 2017, the Assessment Center has suspending all testing for non-LSUE students).
