Math Placement Test

Please read all of the following guidelines and instructions carefully before beginning the exam. If you are having difficulty taking the test, please see our troubleshooting directions.


  • Please set aside 45 minutes to take the assessment so that you can complete it in a single sitting. Please complete the assessment prior to your summer registration session so that your placement will be ready when you schedule classes.
  • The assessment consists of 25 multiple choice or multiple-select (choose more than one option) questions.
  • You have 45 minutes to complete the assessment once you begin the test.
  • You may use a calculator and paper and pencil as you take the assessment.
  • You may not use online resources or have someone else take the assessment for you.
  • The use of outside resources (the internet, having someone else complete the assessment for you) is a violation of Capital University's academic integrity policies.
  • This assessment is a portion of your placement. Other items that may be considered are the courses you took in high school, your Math ACT or SAT scores, or other college-level coursework.
  • This assessment may be the first part of a multi-step placement process and the course you are initially placed into may change in the first week or two of class based on other placement tools administered in your class.
  • Please note: before taking the test, you must accept the invitation to join the class. Check you Capital email account for more information.
