The Math Challenge Exam is currently being offered online, during the campus closure. Student still must meet with their Academic Advisor prior to scheduling their appointment with the TTC. The morning of their Math Challenge appointment, students will receive instructions on how to complete this adaptive math placement exam. The challenge exam will take between 30-90 minutes after completing the orientation.Students will receive a score report via email a few days after completion. The math challenge is an adaptive exam designed to assess a student's readiness for courses within the NSU math sequence, as such the results will just include the resulting course prefix.
If you wish to challenge your course placement in mathematics, you have the option to take the Mathematics Challenge Exam in the Tutoring and Testing Center prior to your first semester at NSU.
MyMathTest is an online tool, developed by Pearson, designed to assess students’ skills in mathematics and accurately determine appropriate course readiness. Students will complete 1-5 levels of assessment (each level is timed at 30 minutes) based on current course placement. Therefore, the total exam time can vary. All questions will be multiple choice and all materials needed for the exam will be provided by the TTC. While taking the challenge exam, students are not allowed to receive assistance from others, visit other websites, or use any calculators. The results of the exam will determine whether you will stay in current course placement or can move to a higher level. Students can take this exam only once, prior to the start of their first mathematics course at NSU. Exams must be taken on campus in the Tutoring and Testing Center, SAB 2nd Floor. Same day appointments will be available only during Summer Orientation.
