ALEKS Math Placement Assessment (MPA) Scores for Math & Other Courses

*Note: Your first ALEKS score will not count for math placement at Western; we treat ALEKS MPA #1 as a practice test for our students.  The scores for ALEKS MPA #2 (or highest of scores from  MPA 2, 3, or 4 if you should decide to reassess) will count as official for math placement and registration purposes.

 

Students are admitted to mathematics courses based on MPA (or the former paper-based MPT) results as shown in the following Scaled Scores table (effective Spring 2017):
