Math Placement
  • History: In previous years, the math placement exam was administered as a pencil/paper exam. Students, identified by the Academic Assistance Center, were pulled from important sessions during Orientation and Enrollment to take the paper-based exam.
  • Why: Not only will having a computerized exam allow students to participate fully in the O&E program, but the exam scores will be populated in iSIS in a timely manner. This allows the advisor and student the chance to view the scores during the advising session to determine the appropriate level math course.
  • Who: We are requiring all incoming K-State students to take the math placement exam. This exam was designed specifically to test the preparedness for K-State math courses, and although the student may have prior experience, this internally designed exam will help to place the student in the most appropriate K-State math course.
  • When: We are requesting all incoming K-State students to take the exam prior to attending Orientation and Enrollment. We have communicated this information on all correspondence we are sending to students who register for O&E. We will send a reminder to students who have not taken the exam 5 days before the registered date. We will also phone call students between the 5 days and day before the registered date as a friendly reminder as well. Students who are not able or do not take the exam before O&E, will take the exam prior to the advising appointment. At the 10:45am College & Advising session, each college will advise the students who have not taken the exam where to go. Students who still need to complete the exam will need to do so prior to meeting with their academic advisor in the afternoon.
  • Scoring: The possible scores on the exam range from 10 – 50 points. Performance on the exam is reported as a recommendation for the student and academic advisor to use during course selection along with ACT/SAT score, transcripts, etc. Students should feel comfortable discussing their academic strengths and challenges with their academic advisor. There is no penalty for a low score on the MPE and the score does not appear on your academic transcript. Students will not know their MPE score prior to meeting with their advisor. The key below is only provided to advisors.

thank you

We value and appreciate the time you spend to help make Orientation & Enrollment special for new K-State students. We recognize that some students attending the program are still undecided about their final college choice and the experience they have will help make that difference. Thank you in advance and please feel free to contact Tamara Bauer with any questions about June Orientation & Enrollment.
