Math Compass Change!

The Math Department has revised the COMPASS score required for WIU students to place directly into MATH 100.  Students who score at least a 51 on the COMPASS test may enroll directly into MATH 100 and bypass taking MATH 099 (the non-credit preparatory class).

Students who score at least a 71 on the COMPASS test may enroll directly into STAT 171 or MATH 101.

MATH 099 and MATH 100 are both offered online, and STAT 171 is offered online and at WIU-QC. All three courses plus MATH 101 are offered on the Macomb campus.

Math study aids that may be helpful (as suggested by students): http://www.act.org/compass/sample/,  www.math.com, Kahn Academy, CliffsNotes, Head First series, http://www.analyzemath.com/practice_tests.html.

COMPASS is offered both at WIU-Macomb and WIU-QC at no fee to WIU students. It is also offered at many other community colleges, colleges, and universities. You may have to pay a testing fee.
