Dual Enrollment Math Assessment Test Information
Math Assessment Test
To enroll in math classes through Dual Enrollment, a placement score is required. Eligibility and placement are based on SAT/ACT scores OR the Math Assessment test. The purpose of the Math Assessment test is to determine the student’s knowledge of arithmetic and algebra at the present time.
It is very important that students do their own work and give their best effort on this test so that they will be placed in courses where they will be successful. Attempting a course that is above their skill level most likely will result in poor grades or withdrawal from the course. Taking a course below their skill level may lead to boredom and inattention and, consequently, a poor grade.

- A student needs to take the Math Assessment if the ACT and SAT scores are not high enough to take MATH 110 or 115.
- Students have 60 minutes for Section 1 and then another 60 minutes for Section 2 (Section 2 will open up with a score of 23 or higher in Section 1). Going over the time limit will result in a loss of 1 point per minute exceeded.
- If a student doesn’t get a high enough score on the Math Assessment, their only option left is to take MATH 100, remedial math. This remedial math counts for 3 college credits, but only as elective credits.
- Once a student passes MATH 100, they are allowed to take MATH 110 or MATH 114.
- The Math Assessment can be retaken twice within the same year.
