Math Placement - FAQ

What is the WSU MPA?

A: The WSU MPA is the ALEKS Math Placement Assessment which covers material from basic math through pre-calculus. The assessment will take approximately 90 minutes to complete; afterwards a targeted Prep and Learning Module will be available for you to review and learn material, and to improve placement and eventual course outcomes.

All students are strongly encouraged to spend several hours using the ALEKS Prep and Learning Module after their initial assessment. Even if you have achieved placement in your desired course, time spent in ALEKS will better prepare you for your upcoming course and ultimately lead to better grades.
