# Math Placement Test

As part of the UC Blue Ash response to the COVID-19 pandemic, all on-campus testing is temporarily unavailable. Tests will be online only until further notice.

## Math Placement Test Overview

The math placement test is a computer-based test used to determine a student's math preparedness. It is designed to be taken without the use of calculators or other aids.

The math placement test consists of multiple choice questions that are presented one at a time. With each correct answer, a more difficult question is presented. As soon as the program determines the level of mathematical preparation, it will display your placement score on your monitor. Record and/or print your score.

You may take the math placement test two times (required wait to retake is at least three weeks between testing dates). Math placement scores are valid for two years.
