Revamping College Math Placement at Nevada State College

Under Nevada State College’s old math placement policy, incoming students took the Accuplacer exam during the summer prior to new-student orientation. Historically, about 75% of those students placed into remedial math based on their Accuplacer scores or on their scores from a previous SAT or ACT test. In 2016, they moved to using EdReady as both an initial placement diagnostic (when an SAT or ACT score was not available) and as an independent-study remediation option for students to use before they arrived on campus. This gave students the ability to increase their EdReady scores and thus their math course placement, enabling many of them to avoid taking a remedial math course.
