ADP Math Placement Testing Information

ADP Mathematics Placement Exam Information for Students

The Mathematics Placement system in the School of Accelerated Degree Programs is designed to assess students’ mathematical abilities before they enroll in their first math course in ADP. The purpose of the math placement process is to ensure that you are placed in a mathematics course that you are ready to take, and in which you have the skills necessary to succeed. As such, receiving outside help on this exam, or otherwise violating the rules of the exam, could result in you being placed into a mathematics course more advanced than you are ready to take.

If you have already earned transfer credit for a general education mathematics course, the Mathematics Placement Exam requirement may be waived. Please see your advisor for more information.

The Mathematics Placement Exam consists of two components, Part I and Part II: 

You may take each part only two times, and you must earn a passing score on Part I to be eligible to take Part II. Practice exams are available for both parts (see Study Resources below for more information).

You must complete the exam during the same quarter you register to take it. Failing to do so will result in will require you to enroll in and successfully complete (with a C or better) Foundations of Mathematics as a stand-alone 3-credit course before you may enroll in any other math course through ADP.

The Mathematics Placement Exam for Summer 2019 will be available until 11:59pm on Sunday, September 22, 2019.

Practice exams are below:
Mathematics Placement Exam Part I Practice
Mathematics Placement Exam Part II Practice

Additional practice exams will be available to you in Canvas once you register to take the placement exam. You may take the practice exams in Canvas as many times as you would like during the quarter you are registered to complete the Mathematics Placement Exam. Each practice exam in Canvas is algorithmically generated and will be different every time you take it.

Tutoring for the ADP Mathematics Placement Exam is available through the Quantitative Learning Center. See the full schedule.
