Math PReP (Placement Reassessment Program)
Your ACT score placed you in one class, the RUA may have placed you in another class, and you still feel misplaced …Welcome to option #3 Math PReP—Your opportunity to test out of your current math placement and into the next course.
Math PReP is a self paced review and testing program for Math 095, 096, 121 and 122. For a small fee, you can take our Math Department Pre Test (using My Math Test). Your initial test is based on the course in which you are placed. Based on the test results, the web-based program will give you an individualized study plan that will review the concepts with which you are struggling. Once the study plan is complete, we allow you to take the course placement exam again to see if you can be moved to a higher level course.
For students who wish to review concepts and prepare for their assigned course, the individualized study plan based on their test results will review the concepts taught in the prior course and allow students to work on concepts to be covered in the course that they will be taking.
For more information, please contact Mary Williams (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Cathy Evins (email@example.com).
