Through the New Student Information Session on Canvas, incoming students receive an overview of the Mathematics Challenge and information about whether to take this optional exam. If you are interested in completing this test, please complete the request through the Math/Comp Module in the New Student Information Session on Canvas. If you have any questions about math course placement, please reach out to your CAPS Advisor.
MyMathTest is an online tool, developed by Pearson, designed to assess students’ skills in mathematics and accurately determine appropriate course readiness. Students will complete between 1 to 5 levels of assessment (each level is timed at 30 minutes); therefore, the total exam time can vary. All questions will be multiple choice. While taking the placement exam, students are not allowed to receive assistance from others, visit other websites, or use any calculators.
Please Note: Students must complete the Mathematics Challenge Exam prior to their first semester at NSU, and will only be permitted one attempt at this exam.
