Mathematics Placement Test: Typical Results with Unexpected Outcomes
Ingalls, Victoria
MathAMATYC Educator, v2 n2 p8-10 Feb 2011
Based on the results of a prior case-study analysis of mathematics placement at one university, the mathematics department developed and piloted a mathematics placement test. This article describes the implementation process for a mathematics placement test and further analyzes the test results for the pilot group. As an unexpected result, the study raises awareness concerning the use of multiple measures for mathematics placement, especially as a subjective human judgment.
