Transcript

  • 1. CSU WORKSHOP Andrea Solis- Program Coordinator Mayra Perez-Academic Counselor Noe Mora- Academic Advisor
  • 2. WHAT ARE PLACEMENT TESTS?
    • The California State University system wide placement testing program in basic reading, writing, and mathematics skills consists of the English Placement Test (EPT) and the Entry Level Mathematics (ELM) exam. Both tests are printed and scored for the CSU by Educational Testing Service (ETS).
    • YOU MAY BE REQUIRED TO TAKE ONE OR BOTH OF THESE TESTS, REGARDLESS OF YOUR GPA.
  • 3. WHAT IS THE ENGLISH PLACEMENT TEST?
    • The CSU requires new students to be tested in English as soon as possible after they are admitted and before enrolling at a CSU campus. The test is used to determine whether students are prepared for college work; and if they are not, to place the students in appropriate remediation courses or activities. Students may be exempt from the test if they have scored well on other specified tests or have completed appropriate courses.
  • 4. WHO MUST TAKE THE EPT?
    • The CSU English Placement Test must be completed by all entering
    • undergraduates, with the exception of those who present proof of one
    • of the following:
    • • A score of 500 or above on the critical reading section of the College Board SAT Reasoning Test
    • • A score of 22 or above on the American College Testing (ACT) English Test
    • • A score of 3 or above on either the Language and Composition or Composition and Literature examination of the College Board Scholastic Advanced Placement Program
    • • Completion and transfer to CSU of the credits for a college course that satisfies the CSU General Education requirement in English Composition, provided such a course was completed with a grade of C or better
    • • A score of “Exempt” or “Ready for college-level English courses” on the CSU Early Assessment Program (EAP) taken along with the English Language Arts California Standard Test in grade 11.
  • 5. WHAT IS THE ENTRY LEVEL MATHEMATICS?
    • The ELM exam is designed to assess the skill levels of
    • entering CSU students in the areas of mathematics typically
    • covered in three years of rigorous college preparatory
    • mathematics courses in high school. Those undergraduate
    • students who do not demonstrate college-level skills will be
    • directed to courses or programs designed to help them attain
    • these skills. The ELM is not a condition for admission to the
    • CSU, but it is a condition of enrollment.
  • 6. WHO MUST TAKE THE ELM?
    • All entering undergraduates must take the ELM
    • exam before enrolling in a course that satisfies the
    • college-level mathematics requirement of the
    • General Education-Breadth program. Exemptions
    • from the test are given only to those students who
    • can present proof of one of the following:
    • • A score of 550 or above on the mathematics section of the College Board SAT Reasoning Test
    • • A score of 550 or above on a College Board SAT Subject Test in Mathematics (level 1 or level 2)
    • • A score of 23 or above on the American College Testing (ACT) Mathematics Test
    • • A score of 3 or above on the College Board Advanced Placement Calculus AB or Calculus BC exam
  • 7. WHO MUST TAKE THE ELM? (CONT.)
    • • A score of 3 or above on the College Board Advanced Placement Statistics examination
    • • Completion and transfer to CSU of a college course that satisfies the requirement in Quantitative Reasoning, provided such a course was completed with a grade of C or better
    • • A score of “Exempt” or “Ready for college-level Mathematics courses” on the CSU Early Assessment Program (EAP), taken in grade 11 in conjunction with the CST in Summative High School Mathematics or Algebra II
    • • A score of “Conditionally ready for college-level Mathematics courses” or “Conditional” on the CSU Early Assessment Program (EAP) taken in grade 11 along with the California Standards Test in Summative High School Mathematics or Algebra II, provided successful completion of a CSU approved 12th grade math course that requires Algebra II as a prerequisite.
  • 8. TEST SCHEDULE TIME
    • The amount of time required for the EPT and ELM is as follows:
    • I. ENGLISH PLACEMENT TEST
    • Essay — 45 minutes
    • Multiple-Choice
    • Section 1 — 30 minutes
    • Section 2 — 30 minutes
    • II. ENTRY LEVEL MATHEMATICS TEST
    • 90 minutes
  • 9. SCORE RESULTS
    • EPT –Your EPT total score is reported on a scale that goes from the lowest possible score of 120 to the highest possible score of 180. If your total score for the EPT is 147 or above, you are ready for college-level English. If you score below 147, faculty believe that you will require preparatory instruction to help you attain the skills you need to succeed in regular college English courses.
    • ELM - Your ELM total score is reported on a scale that goes from the lowest possible score of 0 to the highest possible score of 80. If your total score on the ELM is 50 or above, you are ready to enroll directly in a college level quantitative reasoning course. If you receive a total scaled score below 50, faculty believe you will require preparatory instruction to help you attain the skills you
  • 10. EARLY ASSESSMENT PROGRAM (EAP)
    • The EAP tests are augmented California Standards
    • Tests (CSTs) in 11th-grade English and
    • mathematics; these tests are part of California's
    • public school testing and accountability system and
    • are required of all students. The augmented tests
    • are developed by CSU faculty, who make sure the
    • CSU placement standards are covered.
