Placement Testing

Placement into Writing and Mathematics Courses

Students are placed into writing and math courses based on their SAT scores. Upon request, the Center for Academic Support and Tutoring is prepared to coordinate and administer placement tests in writing and mathematics. There is no opportunity to re-take either the English Skills or the Mathematics Skills Examinations. 

CAST is still conducting placement testing until the end of the Fall 2020 add/drop period.  If you would like to request a placement test in writing and/or math, please e-mail CAST at .



This 90-minute examination tests a student’s ability to compose an essay on a specific reading. 

Qualified professionals score essays for basic paragraph and sentence structure, thesis, and ability to reason logically with limited supporting detail. 



This online placement exam consists of Quantitative Reasoning, Algebra, and Statistics.
