The Math Placement Assessment will function on most Windows and Mac based systems and in many browsers. We recommend a mouse to click on the appropriate answers and to navigate the assessment, not the keyboard. No calculators are allowed on this assessment; the questions are designed to evaluate your math ability without a calculator. Remember, this assessment determines which math class you should begin with in order to succeed in college; cheating or using a calculator on this exam will only hurt your college career and possibly keep you from graduating in a timely manner.
