To begin this assessment, you will need your W&J username and password that was mailed to you by the ITS office here at W&J. Our ITS office will begin mailing that information to students in May. If you have paid your deposit to the College and have not received your username and password by mail before the math placement assessment becomes available on May 15, please contact our ITS helpdesk at 724-503-1001, ext 6022.
PLEASE NOTE: By logging into Sakai and beginning the mathematics placement assessment, you are agreeing to take the test unaided (no calculator, no outside help). Using those resources puts you at risk of inflating your true score and thereby placing yourself into a course for which you are unprepared. You are also acknowledging that you understand that providing and/or using assistance in any form on this test is a violation of the College's academic honesty policy. Additionally, you are acknowledging that you understand that you will have one hour to complete this placement exam. The time will be kept by the online system used to administer it.
Math Placement Instructions
You will need to have your username and password ready to access the mathematics placement assessment.
Log into W&J Sakai to access the mathematics placement assessment (you will enter your username and password at the top of the page)
Click on the "Math Placement" tab on the top of your Sakai page
Click the "Tests & Quizzes" tab on the left side of the screen
Click the link for "Math Placement Exam" under the title "Take an Assessment"

Upon completion of the test, a score will be generated that will determine your math placement. That score will appear on the screen at the completion of the test. You may want to write down that score for your own records and refer to the What does my score mean? What class is right for me? page for more information. Your advisor at LAUNCH will also receive a copy of this score to use as a reference during your advising session. If you have any questions before then, you can contact our first-year office by phone at 724-503-1001, ex. 3069 or by email at email@example.com.
