Math Placement Domains

Unlike Reading Comprehension and Writing Skills, there are 3 "placement domains" for Math: Arithmetic, Elementary Algebra and College Level Math. It is helpful to understand that a score of 45 in the Elementary Algebra domain is higher than a score of 120 in the Arithmetic domain. The score report printed out at the completion of the placement exam will indicate which math course a student should register for.
