Placement Test Scores

Placement exam scores determine what courses students will be placed.

Click on the exam for a list of cut scores. Tests scores are valid for two years from date test is taken.

Students who test into ANY developmental education course must also enroll in SLS1501 (Introduction to the College Experience).

 

EA = Elementary Algebra;  CLM = College-level Mathematics;  STEM = science, technology, engineering and mathematics; QAS = Quantitative Reasoning, Algebra, and Statistics; AAF = Advanced Algebra Functions

ENC1101 - College Composition 1 245 - 300  (Writing & Reading)
REA0017 200 - 236  (Reading)
REA0056 - College Reading 237 - 244  (Reading)
MAT0022 - Developmental Algebra 200 - 230  (QAS)
MAT0056 - Advanced Developmental Algebra 231 - 241  (QAS)
MAT1033C  - Intermediate Algebra 242 - 300  (QAS)

MAC1114 - Trigonometry 250  (AAF)
MAC2233 - Survey of Calculus 250 (AAF)
MAC2311 - Calculus and Analytic Geometry 1 275  (AAF)

 

*If QAS is administered and the score is 255-300, the exam will automatically branch into AAF. If PERT is taken first and a score of 123 or higher is achieved, then only AAF should be administered. Either way, an AAF Score of at least 250 is required for Higher Level Math.
