New online math placement test:

Just a reminder that the online math placement test is up and running as of this past Monday. New freshmen will access this test through the portal.  After logging in to the portal (with Bronco NetID/password), they will go to the student services tab, then the link to the math placement test, which can be found in the online placement testing channel.

An interface, which is running each afternoon, moves the scores from the placement test system to SIS.  The scores are stored in SOATEST, the test code is 'MAPL'.  Values can range from 0 to 30.

New, incoming freshmen for fall 2007 have been sent a postcard letting them know that they need to take this test prior to orientation, and with instructions on where to find it.

Questions on the test or placements should be directed to Steve Culver in the Math Dept.

Other items:

  • Dismissal letters went out Friday to the approximately 450 undergraduates and 17 graduate students who were academically dismissed at the end of the Spring 2007 semester.
  • Students who graduated this April will receive their diplomas in about ten weeks; however as soon as the degree is awarded, they will see the degree noted on their transcript.  We are working to award degrees as quickly as possible for these students.
