The entire thing was helpful. Being able to see everything gave me confidence in what to expect on my placement test. The videos, and having the ability to check the work on things I got incorrect were probably the most helpful. Honestly can’t think of a thing to improve. Thank you.Beatrice Hernandez - May 2022

My math placement test went well, thanks to all the reviews and examples for each lesson. I'm an international student, so English is not my native language, but the way teachers delivered lessons was very understandable. Thank you.Chi Pham - August 2020
Mathhelp.com was extremely helpful. I increased my math placement test score by 135 points by using the website. I am now ready to take college algebra. The teachings are a good pace and the most helpful thing are the links to previous lessons that remind you of building blocks you need for the current lesson. Also, the option to have the audio of a problem on the practice problems is extremely helpful. Kim Agnew - July 2020

What is the Placement Test?
Placement testing is a practice that many colleges and universities use to assess college readiness and determine which classes a student should initially take. Since most two-year colleges have open, non-competitive admissions policies, many students are admitted without college-level academic qualifications. Placement tests assess abilities in English, mathematics and reading; they may also be used in other disciplines such as foreign languages, computer and internet technologies, health and natural sciences. The goal is to offer low-scoring students remedial coursework to prepare them for regular coursework. Less-prepared students are placed into various remedial situations, from adult basic education through various levels of developmental college courses.
Many students do not understand the high-stakes nature of placement testing. Lack of preparation is also cited as a problem. According to a study by Rosenbaum, Schuetz and Foran, roughly three quarters of students surveyed say that they did not prepare for their placement tests.
Once students receive their placement, they either may or must begin taking developmental classes as prerequisites to credit-bearing college level classes that count toward a degree. Most students are unaware that developmental courses do not count toward a degree.
