Placement Test Preparation

In order to give you a strong start to your college career, the Math Cafés offer free placement test preparation. Visit a Math Café for an initial Placement Test Evaluation session. What will happen during this session?

  • The Math Café facilitator will use software called PLATO to evaluate your current skills.
  • The PLATO software will provide a custom learning plan based on your current needs.
  • The Math Café facilitator will be available to answer questions you have about the custom learning plan and PLATO.

Complete your learning plan using the PCs in the Math Cafés or you may prefer to use PLATO on your own computer (broadband internet access is necessary).
