Accuplacer Information

You may not use a calculator, notes, textbooks, or other papers.  Scratch paper will be provided to you and you may not be removed from the room.

This is an adaptive test which means the computer will automatically decide the next question to give you based on your responses to previous questions.  This enables the computer to find the individual level of difficulty that is correct for you.  Because of the adaptability, you cannot omit any questions or come back to change an answer later.  The question is not timed, so you can think about each question thoroughly.  If you do not know an answer to a question, try to eliminate one or more answers and make an educated guess to the correct answer.

What Is Math Anxiety?           

One definition of math anxiety is “the panic, helplessness, paralysis, and mental disorganization that arises among some people when they are required to solve a mathematical problem”. (Source:  Tobias and Weissbrod (1980)).  Math anxiety is a serious and pervasive problem, especially in the community-college setting.  Students may experience math anxiety in many forms and degrees, from “freezing up” during a math exam, to attempting to avoid anything having to do with numbers.   Symptoms may be physical or psychological and may include (but not be limited to) any of the following:

Physical:  Nausea, shortness-of-breath, sweating, heart palpitations, increased blood pressure.

 Psychological:  Memory loss, paralysis of thought, loss of self-confidence, negative self-talk, math avoidance, isolation (thinking you are the only one who feels this way).
