About the QRA (Formerly the Math Placement Exam)
The QRA is given in two parts.
PART 1: Basic Algebra -- 25 questions that cover material at the level of high school algebra
PART 2: Calculus Readiness -- 25 questions that cover material from high school algebra II and trigonometry
Each part is 30 minutes long. In any given session, you can expect to have enough time ( 1 hour ) to complete one attempt for each part. Reviewing for the exam is not necessary but if you wish to do so the material from any college algebra course such as the text by Sullivan would be appropriate for the basic algebra portion and any precalculus text would cover material from the calculus readiness test.
Please click here to find out more about the type of questions found on the exam.
Please sign up for the QRA here.
If a time does not appear in the drop down menu when registering, that time is full. Also, QRA@math.wvu.edu will not register you for an exam time. You must do that yourself.
If your Mix ID and student ID number do not work in the sign up system, send your name and student ID number to QRA@math.wvu.edu from your mix email account.
NOTE: You may only take the QRA a total of two times.
NO OTHER ATTEMPTS MAY BE USED FOR MATH PLACEMENT.
After you have successfully completed the math workshop you will be considered to have placed into college algebra. We will use the final exam from the workshop to assign a new placement score in our system. This score will be equivalent to a Math 126 placement score.
QRA for Chemistry Students
**If you have taken the QRA twice and you have completed and passed a Math class, you may take the QRA a third time for Chemistry placement only. You must email QRA@math.wvu.edu to request the third try for Chemistry.
Please note that the Math Department does not maintain the QRA requirements for Chemistry. If you have an SAT Math score of 600 or ACT Math score of 26 you may enroll in Chem 115 without the QRA. Our understanding is that you will need at least a 10 on part one of the QRA for Chem 110 (regardless of your SAT/ACT scores) and 24 total on part 1 and part 2 for Chem 115 (if you do not place in via SAT/ACT or by passing Chem 110).
Contact chemistry if you have any questions regarding these policies at 304 293-3435 or email: Chemistry@mail.wvu.edu
If you have a math SAT score below 570 or a math ACT score below 25 you must take the QRA for placement into MATH 126 (College Algebra) or above.
To be eligible to enroll in the following courses without taking the QRA you must have:
|ACT of at least||OR||SAT of at least|
|Not Required||Math 121|
|Less than 10 out of 25||Workshop|
|10 or 11 out of 25||Math 126 A (5 day)|
|12 or higher out of 25||Math 126 B (4 day)|
|13 or higher out of 25||Math 129|
|Basic Algebra (Part 1 Score)||Calc Readiness (Part 2 Score)||Placement|
|15 or higher out of 25||Enough to total 24||Math 150 or Math 153|
|17 or higher out of 25||Enough to total 33||Math 155|
