All incoming students are required to complete an online math placement exam prior to starting at Stetson. Scores on this exam will inform placement in to specific math courses (MATH 122Q, 130, or 141Q) as well as guide students and their advisors in choosing an appropriate Q course. The exam was designed by the Mathematical Association of America and is the most widely used test for mathematics placement in the United States. Students may take the test online at their convenience. Students who do not earn a score sufficient for placement into MATH 122Q, 130, or 141Q have the option of enhancing their math skills by enrolling in a non-credit, online course before reattempting the placement exam.
An orientation and training video for the course offered through Hawkes Learning Systems is available at http://www.hawkeslearning.com/Students/StudentTraining.htm. Students may retake the placement test after making sufficient progress in the online course. If you have any questions, contact Dr. Tom Vogel.
