Description

MyMathTest is a new, flexible online system for building your own placement tests and short refresher programs.

Features

Using MyMathTest as an Educator

You can use MyMathTest's placement features to assess students' skills at math and accurately place them in the appropriate course. Using the online testbanks, you can create tests that assess students' skills at the developmental math level or at the precalculus level. You also can use MyMathTest to create short refresher courses to help students come up to speed with their math skills.

Comprehensive test-creation options: You can design tests that assess test students' skills at the developmental math level or at the precalculus level. You select the questions from an online testbank and you can preview the questions before deciding whether to include them. After you have chosen the questions, you can view the test as it will appear to students. In addition, you can have a wide range of options for for your test. You can set limits on the number of attempts at the test, password access, prerequisites, partial credit on multi-part questions, and many other options.

Powerful online gradebook: The MyMathTest online Gradebook automatically records your students' test results and gives you extensive control over the results. You can generate detailed reports on the results and export them to a spreadsheet program, such as Microsoft Excel.

Simple placement tools: If you are using MyMathTest as a placement tool, you can create a list of the courses that students can potentially place into. From your Gradebook, you can quickly assign students based on their results, and send an email to the students to tell them their placement.

Multiple-program management: Using MyMathTest's coordinator-and-members feature, you can update all the copies of a test program at once. You create a master program, called a coordinator, and then generate copies to be the members. Changes you make to the master program automatically update the members.

 

Using MyMathTest as a Student

You can use MyMathTest to practice for and take placement tests or to do a refresher course to improve your math skills. MyMathTest helps you build your skills by taking practice tests and working in your personalized Study Plan, which shows what you need to work on.

When you register for MyMathTest, you can take practice tests, see your results, and practice the concepts you still need help with. Practice questions come with tutorial help, including videos, step-by-step instruction, and other types of study aids.

Low-cost subscription: You register for a low-cost six-week subscription to MyMathTest. Within that time period, you can practice and review your skills. If you need more practice, you can sign up for another subscription.

Personalized Study Plan: An online Study Plan lets you study on their own or work in a refresher course for an instructor. Based on your initial test results, MyMathTest generates a personalized Study Plan that shows at a glance which topics you need to practice. The Study Plan links directly to interactive, tutorial questions that you can use for practice. The questions include guided solutions and multimedia learning aids to give you extra help when you need it.

Practice tests: When you work in your Study Plan, the values change in the sample tests so you an practice a question as many times as you need. Practice questions give you helpful feedback when you enter an incorrect answer.

Tutorial help: Practice questions include multimedia resources, such as videos and animations, that help you answer the questions. For example, you could watch a video of an instructor giving a portion of a lecture or look at an animation that demonstrates a concept. These multimedia learning aids help you become confident with the concepts required to answer the question.

 Instructor Testimonials

 

"The leading placement system's placement test was not effectively placing mathematics students at our college. Networking with colleagues at other institutions identified problems with another leading placement system and convinced us that we needed a placement test that fit our students and courses.  MyMathTest will enable our department to create an effective placement tool. The MyMathTest platform will allow us to develop, improve and ultimately customize a placement test for our students and our course offerings."

Graham Smith, Kellogg College

 

"MyMathTest is the ideal solution to our placement dilemma.  Using MyMathTest our students benefit from the practice exercises with guided solutions with the ability to practice before and remediate after taking the placement test; and MyMathTest automatically generates multiple versions of our placement test with unlimited variations on test questions.  After evaluating other placement options we found  MyMathTest to be the product worth waiting for."

Teaching Professor, Four Year University

 

"Every year, we have a number of students enrolling in a math or science class but have forgotten some mathematical topic. A quick review is all they need. However, the class needs to be offered anytime of the year so students can access it whenever the need arises. After looking at the different options that allow students to do a quick review, I chose MyMathTest. First it assesses student needs and then recommends what must be studied. Then, it gives ample practice until the student can master the concept. I am very pleased with what MyMathTest can do. I think students will benefit enormously."

Deanna Li, North Seattle Community College

 

"MyMathTest will improve our placement accuracy tremendously. Unlike the online test that we are currently using, MyMathTest will allow us to screen students with prerequisite skills tests that match exactly the expectations of our courses.  Students whose skills have weakened will be able to use their personalized MyMathTest Study Plan to recover the skills they have forgotten. After retesting they will be able to select their first math class confident that they are prepared for success."

Senior Lecturer, Math Lab and Placement Coordinator, Four Year College

 

"MMT provides students with a great opportunity to spend some time reviewing the portions of their mathematical background that are not as strong as will be needed for the math course they will soon be taking...before they start the class! "
