LACONIA — Laconia Adult Education is offering an Algebra II/Accuplacer/Assistments class beginning on Monday, August 26. The class will meet for (15) fifteen weeks from 6–9 p.m.
This class is designed to help students improve their math skills and scores so that when they go on to post-secondary educational opportunities, they will be able to enroll in regular courses leading to their degree as opposed to having to spend time in remedial math classes.
The Accuplacer that is given on a college level is a battery of computerized tests that determines a students' knowledge in math, reading and writing as they prepare to enroll in college level courses. The results of this assessment, in conjunction with the students' academic background, goals and interests, are used by the college academic coordinators and counselors to place students into college level courses that meet their needs. The Accuplacer also helps colleges to determine the students' strengths and weaknesses and to provide them with early academic help if necessary.
