You are required to take the Calculus Readiness Assessment if you are intending to major in Astronomy, Computer Science, Earth & Planetary Sciences, Economics, Engineering, Mathematics, Photonics or Physics. This will help us assess whether we should provide you with additional resources to ensure your success in Calculus in the fall semester.

If you are majoring in one of the other sciences, you are NOT required to take the Calculus Readiness Assessment because our recommendation is for you to take Pre-Calculus prior to taking Calculus. However, you may take the Calculus Readiness Assessment if you have a strong background in Calculus and would like to be able to bypass Pre-Calculus and go directly into Calculus.

How to Complete the Calculus Readiness Assessment

The purpose of the Calculus Readiness Assessment is to determine which math course will be the best option for you in the fall. Please answer questions to the best of your ability. Otherwise, your course recommendation may not be suitable to your level of knowledge.

The assessment consists of twenty-four multiple-choice questions. Sixteen questions have a value of two points, eight questions have a value of one point. At the conclusion of the assessment, you will be provided with your score via email.
