Adams State places students into mathematics courses using ALEKS PPL (Placement, Preparation, and Learning). Students entering Adams State University with an ACT Mathematics score of less than 19 (or an SAT Mathematics score below 460 (for scores prior to March 2016) or below 500 (for scores after March 2016)) are required to take the Adams State ALEKS Mathematics Placement prior to enrolling in a mathematics course. The placement mechanism allows each student up to five assessments. Students have the option of working with ALEKS in learning mode between assessments to attempt to improve their placement.

ALEKS Score | Course(s) |
---|---|

76-100 | MATH 120 |

61-75 | MATH 107 |

46-60 | MATH 106 |

30-45 | MATH 099, MATH 104, MATH 110, or MATH 150 |

14-29 | MATH 097 |

0-13 | MATH 095 |

*Note:* In accordance with Colorado statewide policy, students with an ACT MATH score of 19 or higher are eligible to enroll in either MATH 150 or MATH 104. However, these students are strongly encouraged to take the ALEKS placement exam in order to maximize the options available and identify the recommended course(s).

## Off-site Proctoring

Proctoring for the second through fifth assessments is available by scheduling a proctored assessment with the Grizzly Testing and Learning Center by emailing testingcenter@adams.edu or calling 719-589-8189.
