Quantitative Fundamentals Assessment Requirement
Incoming Class Fall 2014

Incoming students are required to complete the online Quantitative Fundamentals Assessment by August 1, 2014.

Accessing the Online Assessment
  • Course link
  • Register on the site to create your user name, see Register Now
  • The system will request that you login
  • Once logged in see the left hand navigation bar and choose Coursepacks
  • Choose the Course Section and then click Run Course Section
  • Complete the Pre-test for these four parts of the Quantitative Fundamentals assessment, Algebra, Calculus, Statistics, and Probability.
Scoring
  • After completing all four Pre-tests, students may calculate their average percentage to determine if they need to continue with the modules. Add up the four scores and divide by 4.

    • Students who have an average score of 75% or greater from the four pre-tests are not required to continue with the modules and will not be required to attend the Quantitative Review Sessions in September.
    • Students who have an average less than 75% from the four pre-tests must complete the module information and take the final exam for each module that 75% or below was earned
      • Example:
        • Student A received the following pre-test scores:
          • Algebra          80%
          • Probability     75%
          • Statistics       70%
          • Calculus        60%
          • Average        71.25%
      • If the average of the four pre-tests is below 75%, then students will work through the Statistics and Calculus modules and take both of those final exams. We strongly recommend that every student work through all four modules, but in this case, the final exams for Algebra and Probability are NOT required.
  • Final averages will be calculated using the higher score between the pre-test and final exam of each module.
  • All students with an average score of less than 75% must attend all three sessions of the Quantitative Fundamentals Review Sessions.
