All students will begin with Accuplacer’s Elementary Algebra Test. The test is adaptive. If you do very well on the Elementary Algebra test you will automatically advance to the College-Level Math test. The results of these two tests will place you somewhere between Intermediate Algebra and Calculus. If you don’t do as well on Elementary Algebra, you will automatically go on to the Arithmetic test and be placed somewhere between Arithmetic and College Algebra .
An online review resource highly recommended by MCC for the Mathematics placement test is the Khan Academy. Login in instructions may be found at: https://www.Monroecc.edu/go/khan . Students can make use of an extensive library of content, including interactive challenges, assessments, and videos from any computer with access to the web. Students may practice Mathematics at their own pace with Khan Academy’s adaptive assessment environment. You can start at 1 + 1 and work your way into calculus or jump right into whatever topic needs some brushing up. Sign in and start reviewing today prior to your testing!
