Quantitative Reasoning Exam

As of the 2013-14 academic year, the Quantitative Reasoning Exam will be administered online through ALEKS PPL, ALEKS Placement, Preparation, and Learning system. 

To take the exam


  1. If you still need to take the placement exam before the end of this school year, please contact Margot Black to set up an appointment to take the test.  Before taking the test you should set up your account with ALEKS (if you haven’t already) and take a practice exam.    
  2. If you haven’t done so already, set up your ALEKS* account by clicking on this link.   
  3. Enter the Course Code 9PJ6G-NJJEX when prompted.  You will be prompted to enter credit card information to pay the $25 fee for the exam.  This fee includes FIVE exam attempts as well as 6 weeks in an adaptive online learning module.  
  4. Your first attempt of the exam is not password protected. You may take the exam once as a “practice test” but it will count as one of the five attempts and WILL NOT COUNT as your placement score.  

    Only proctored test results will be sent to the registrar.   
    Your practice test result will not count as your placement test score.
