Math Placement Recommendations                                                                                        Placement Exam platform: Accuplacer

Scores can be found for each student on myOswego under Faculty services on the bottom of the student menu.

Exams taken Fall 2013-Present are from Accuplacer and can be interpreted as follows:

Two placement tests are offered:  the Elementary Algebra Test and the College Level Math Test.  

In the chart below "ELALG" refers to the score on the Elementary Algebra Test and the word "SUM" refers to the sum of the two scores (the number obtained by adding the scores on the Elementary Algebra and College Level Math Tests).

Please follow the following guidelines when discussing math placement:

For Placement Into                         Minimum scores needed

MAX 100                                         ELALG less than 40

MAX 101                                         Either ELALG greater than or equal to 40 and ELALG less than 75 or ELALG greater than or equal to 75 and SUM less than 115

MAT 102                                          ELALG greater than or equal to 75

MAT 104                                          ELALG greater than or equal to 75 and SUM greater than or equal to 115

MAT 158                                          Same as MAT 104

MAT 179                                          Same as MAT 104

MAT 120                                           ELALG greater than or equal to 75 and SUM greater than or equal to 135

MAT 208                                          Same as MAT 120

MAT 210                                          ELALG greater than or equal to 75 and SUM greater than or equal to 165

Accuplacer Conversion for ALEKS implementation

* MAT 104                EL ALG > or = 76 and 40 < or = CLM < 55

* MAT 120                ELALG > or = 76 and 55 < or = CLM < 70

* MAT 208                ELALG > or = 76 and CLM > or = 55

* MAT 210                ELALG > or = 76 and 70 < or = CLM
