Math Placement Policy
Students admitted to the Mayfield College of Engineering require a strong foundation in Math due to the prerequisites of the curriculum. Therefore, progress and academic performance are heavily impacted by engineering students’ math preparation and placement.
ALEKS-PPL allows us to place students accurately at the right math level based on students’ math knowledge and skills. However, this is not the main capability this student success tool provides students. The main contribution of ALEKS to students is offering the opportunity to enhance their math proficiency by creating online learning modules customized to each student based on the student’s math proficiency. Therefore, to increase our engineering students’ math preparation and consequently, their chances of academic success (e.g., retention, time to graduation) all Mayfield College of Engineering students who are
(a) “College-ready” based on TSI,
(b) are not transferring math credits from a higher education institution, and
(c) are not transferring AP math credits
will be placed into mathematics according to Placement Path 2 (ALEKS-PPL) of the Tarleton Mathematics Placement Policy.
