What to Expect
Using the Prometric Math Placement Assessment Site
Step 1: After logging in, you will be taken to a Candidate Menu page. Click "Take a Test." You then will be taken to a page, "Step 1: Select a Test Sponsor," on which there is a box (on the extreme left) titled "Public Tests." The name "Math Diagnostic Test" should be showing in the window. Click "Submit."
Step 2: You will be taken to the page "Step 2: Select a Test." There is only one test listed, the Math Diagnostic Test. Click on "Math Diagnostic Test." (Note that the time limit is 70 minutes, starting when you are presented with the first question.)
Step 3: You will be taken to the page "Step 3: Confirm Test Selection." Click "Take This Test" at the bottom. You will then be taken to the title page of the test. Read over the information at the top. There is no tutorial or practice test available on the test site. We suggest that you consult the Test Tips or Sample Questions.
By clicking on "Summary" (directly under the section letter), you can assess your progress on the test so far. Click on any item number to return to that item on the test and continue working. Notice that you may also mark an item for review later (located directly under the "Summary" button). This feature is handy if you want to review your answers if you have any time remaining after you finish the test!
When you are ready to begin the test, click "Begin The Test."
Step 4: After you submit your test, you may give us feedback (if you wish) in the dialog box. Your score will appear on an information page after the test. Go to the What’s My Placement page to interpret your scores. If you can, print this score page out for your records.
When you are done reviewing your results, click on "Click here to continue" at the bottom of the results page. You will be taken to a page where you can click on "Sign out" to leave the testing site.
If you have problems or questions, please e-mail the Placement Assessment Team at the Hub at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will respond to you within one to two business days during regular business hours.
We look forward to seeing you at Discover Loyola!
