Beginning in Fall 2018 with implementation of Executive Order 1110, placement in mathematics/quantitative reasoning courses utilizes multiple measures to assess academic readiness and placement. The mathematics category indicates placement status in mathematics/quantitative reasoning courses based off of these multiple measures.

Examples

Entry Level Mathematics Status Groups include:

  • Conditional
  • Failed
  • Passed
  • Unspecified

Definition Source

"A code that initially indicates an undergraduate’s status regarding preparedness for college level mathematics and the method by which preparedness was evidenced by the close of the ERSS processing period for the first term in which the student was enrolled. Entry Level Mathematics Proficiency Status does not apply to transitory students (Enrollment Status equals 6). Data regarding changes in the proficiency of students after census date of their first term of enrollment will be collected separately, beginning with the fall 2000 cohort of regularly-admitted first-time freshmen, to permit more detailed reporting about changes in the proficiency of students, including information about those who leave the university and when changes in proficiency have taken place. The CSU Chancellor’s Office, Division of Analytic Studies, will provide each campus with a cohort data file to which campuses will be expected to append data."[1]

"Freshman skills assessment and recommended placement for general education written communication and mathematics/quantitative reasoning courses shall be based on multiple measures of academic proficiency. Such measures may include high school English and mathematics/quantitative reasoning course grades, high school grade point averages, grades in collegiate courses, ACT scores, SAT scores, Advanced Placement scores, International Baccalaureate scores, SAT subject tests or Smarter Balanced Assessment/Early Assessment Program scores.

  • The CSU shall establish systemwide placement standards.
  • The CSU Admissions Advisory Council (AAC) comprised of CSU faculty, students and administrators shall be responsible for the review and recommendation of revisions to systemwide policies regarding:
  • Assessment of college readiness for successful completion of general education written communication and mathematics/quantitative reasoning courses;
  • Preparatory requirements for general education written communication and mathematics/quantitative reasoning course placement; and
  • The Early Start Program
  • Each campus shall establish a student course-placement appeals process.
  • Effective with this executive order, the English Placement Test (EPT) and the Entry- Level Mathematics (ELM) Test shall not be offered, and the EPT and ELM committees are discontinued."[2]
