Placement Tests

The University of Toledo provides incoming students with an innovative and convenient option to complete placement testing. ALEKS is an online system that uses adaptive questioning to quickly and accurately assess student knowledge.  It can be accessed on any computer with internet access that meets the system requirements.

FOR ALL CPPS MAJORS

  • Chemistry placement test is required if you took chemistry in high school.
  • Math placement test is required.
  • English placement test is not required.
  • Foreign language placement test is not required.

Please Note

Placement test(s) should be completed at least a week prior to the student’s New Student Orientation, Rocket Launch program. However, we strongly encourage students to start taking these placement tests at least two months prior in case remediation is needed.

Chemistry Placement Test

  • If you have already earned an AP Chemistry score of 3 or higher, transfer credit equivalent to CHEM 1090 or CHEM 1230 at UT, or if you have not completed any high school chemistry course, you do not have to take a chemistry placement test.
  • Details about the ALEKS Chemistry Placement Test can be found at http://www.utoledo.edu/nsm/chemistry/undergrad/placementtest.html. 
  • After reading about the Chemistry Placement test and reviewing your chemistry knowledge, take the ALEKS Chemistry Placement Exam.
  • There is no fee for the ALEKS Chemistry Placement Test, and unlimited attempts are permitted.

An alternate version of the chemistry placement test is offered in the Test Center on UT’s campus. (This is not recommended since only one attempt is permitted. Please contact the CPPS Office of Student Affairs at #419.530.2010 for permission to take the hard-copy version.)

Math Placement Test

  •  If you have already earned an AP Calculus (AB or BC) score of 3 or higher, or transfer credit equivalent to MATH1850 at UT, you do not have to take a math placement test.
  • Details about the ALEKS Math Placement Test can be found at https://myut.utoledo.edu/tabs/newstudent/pdfs/math%20placement%20student-%20OCT%202014.pdf.
  • After reading about the ALEKS Math Placement Test, you can login, provide payment (small fee required), and begin testing. Three attempts are permitted.

An alternate free version of the math placement test is offered in the Test Center on UT’s campus. (This is not recommended since only one attempt is permitted. Please contact the CPPS Office of Student Affairs at #419.530.2010 for permission to take the hard-copy version.)

If an Advanced Placement test for chemistry or calculus is being taken senior year, the results will not be available until July. Please follow the above requirements.
