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 OE
    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
  • 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 OE. 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 OE, will
    take the exam prior to the advising appointment.
    At the 1045am 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

  • 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.
