The change from a 2 digit math placement score to a single digit math placement score has also included a number of other methods to meet the math placement other than taking the math placement test.
Students may take the math placement test and will receive a score of 1, 2, 3 or 4 depending on the level of the proficiency. The math placement score will then be used as prerequisites for course registration. A student can also use their SAT/ACT math scores or AP scores to determine their math placement level. If a student decides to take the math placement exam and also submit SAT/ACT scores, the student's highest math placement level from all submitted options will prevail.
