|How do I take the math placement test and what is it like?||
Reviewing material that you have previously studied is strongly recommended before you take the placement test. For free resources for preparation click here
The computerized placement
test, called COMPASS, is divided into five levels of material:
Algebra, College Algebra, Geometry, and Trigonometry. Your answer in any
particular section of the test will determine how many problems and which
sections of the test you will see. As long as your answers are correct,
the computer will continue to give you harder questions. Your
answers will determine how many questions you will receive and the areas
in which you will be tested.
The placement test may be taken at most once per semester and at most three times per year. Hand-held calculators are not allowed. There is an online calculator for use during the test.
Children are not allowed in the testing center.
