College Readiness Assessments


VUB provides a variety of statewide services to support veterans as they explore educational and training opportunities. We have expanded the assistance available for program participants by increasing access to individualized counseling and advising services for career exploration, college admissions, and veterans' benefits. These services are provided remotely with Google Meet.


TABE Assessment

This online assessment measures a veteran's general level of math, writing and spelling to help identify academic strengths and weaknesses. The TABE test produces a score based on a grade equivalency of 1 through 13. The TABE takes 60-90 minutes to complete.

Accuplacer Assessment

The Accuplacer assessment evaluate a veteran's math and writing ability to determine his or her level of college math or writing. Most students entering or transferring to a Montana college must complete the Accuplacer Assessment, or similar test (Aleks, eWrite), which place them in an appropriate level of college math and writing courses. The Accuplacer takes about 45-60 minutes to complete.
