The College Mathematics Placement Exam and Compass are just two of several college entrance exams that all are entering College Freshman must take before registration. Nearly all colleges require that students take at least one college-level mathematics courses, such as College Algebra or Introductory Statistics. However, each of the courses requires previous knowledge and mastery of Arithmetic and Algebra Skills. The College Mathematics Placement Exam is an assessment of these background skills.
More than 4 in 5 community college students are assigned to remedial classes in Arithmetic or Algebra. These students can spend their whole Freshman year in courses earning no college credit yet spending a considerable amount of money paying tuition for them. Even more troubling, remedial Mathematics courses are considered the gatekeepers that are preventing students from earning a college degree. Only about 25% of students in remedial courses will eventually earn a degree.
A free College Mathematics Placement Exam is included on every Algebra In A Flash USB.
