OSU requires the Math Placement Exam to assess your preparation for the math course you plan to take.

If you would like to take a practice exam, you may access the test here. Your first completion of the test unlocks learning modules you should use to improve your knowledge and memory of mathematical concepts so that you may improve your score when taking the exam for placement purposes. Learning module questions are based on your practice test; therefore, practice tests should be taken seriously and without assistance (personal calculator, notes, etc.) An unproctored attempt can only be used for practice purposes, and it counts toward the five allowed attempts. Proctored exams are the only acceptable attempts for placement. Only one practice test is allowed. You may have the first attempt proctored so that it will count for placement.

The MLSC offers ALEKS tutoring in the computer lab for those who wish to improve their ALEKS score. ALEKS tutoring is available in the computer lab, anytime the lab is open. You may go into the computer lab to work on your ALEKS Modules, and simply raise your hand when you have a question. The tutors are not allowed to help you with an ALEKS assessment.
