Math 171 Proficiency Exam

Date August 2, 2011

If you are applying to a post-baccalaureate teacher certification for elementary education, early childhood education, or special education with general education foundation, you must take the Math 171 Proficiency Exam to determine whether or not you will be required to take Math 071 prior to Math 171 and 172.  The exam is administered at the Math Center.  A sample exam as well as packets of information for each section of the exam are available via the ‘testing’ link on the Math Center webpage at  Contact Barbara Yardley at 358-2023 or to schedule an appointment to take the exam.  Tell her that you are a post-baccalaureate applicant.  Ms. Yardley typically administers tests from 9:30 am-1:30 pm Monday through Thursday and from 9:30 am-11:00am on Friday throughout the semesters and has shorter times during the rest of the year.  If you are unable to make it during those times, the Math Center will try to set up a different time to take the exam.

As soon as you have done the sample test and are ready to take the exam, you should take it in order to use this information for course scheduling.
