Math Placement Assessment
The math placement assessment is made up of 71 questions, divided into five sections:
- Basic Algebra
- Introductory Algebra
- Intermediate Algebra
You may begin the Math placement process by logging into Campus Connect
. Once you've logged into Campus Connect, choose Self Service > Admission > Next Steps > Placement Process (undergrad)
and then click the Math Test button on the Online Placement Process screen.
The Pretest is required before you can start taking the regular tests. The Pretest is 15 questions long and the questions are similar to the questions on the test. The Pretest score is not used in your course placement and you can review the answers at the end of the test. At the end of the Pretest we offer links to additional Practice Tests, which are optional.
You have 200 minutes to complete your placement assessment online. Only one problem will be visible on the computer screen at a time, but you will be able to return to questions, as long as you have not yet completed the section. Once you start the assessment your time will begin counting down.
All five sections will need to be taken in one sitting. Any sections not taken at the same time as the first section will not be counted for placement.
Help to Prepare
In general, the math placement process is meant to assess your current knowledge. However, you may want to review chapters from the math textbooks that you last used or use the links below as study guides. You may also find study guides on your own that cover one or more of the five math placement sections.
