Math Placement Test
MATH 1065 is required by all College of HHP majors.  Students must place into MATH 1065 in order to be eligible to register for this course.

The Department of Mathematics places students into mathematics courses based upon any one of the following criteria:

  • SAT mathematics score – a score of 540 or higher
  • ACT score – a score of 20 or higher
  • ECU placement test – a score of 14 or higher

If a student does not place into MATH 1065 based upon their SAT/ACT score he/she must take the math placement test.  These tests are offered at orientations and at various times throughout the year.  For more info, and review questions/answers, visit this link: http://www.ecu.edu/cs-cas/math/mathplacementtest.cfm.

If students fail to place into MATH 1065 with a score of 14 or higher on the math placement test they may choose to one, retake the placement test, or two, take remedial math.  Remedial math is listed as MATH 0001, for out-of-state students, and as MATH 0045, for in-state students.  Please note that during the summer if only one version of remedial math is offered, all students may choose to take it.

BITE 2000 Computer Challenge Exam

This exam, offered by the Department of Business Information and Technology Education (BITE), is for Physical Education students to fulfill their computer competency credit to declare.  Instead of taking the one credit course, BITE 2000, students may choose to take this pass/fail exam.  The exam is offered throughout the year, at least once a semester.  Exam dates will be advertised by your advisor through email and below.  Contact the individual listed in the flyer for more info on future test dates for the semester IF the currently advertised date is passed.  The exam is a two-hour, performance-based exam covering computer operation, word processing/introductory desktop publishing, spreadsheets/graphing, databases, networking, and telecommunications skills.  Competencies in ALL of the areas mentioned above MUST be met to pass the exam.  Students taking the exam will use MS Office 2007 with Vista.  PLEASE NOTE: students will need to purchase the “myitlab literacy test out exam” access code at Dowdy Bookstore or at UBE and register beforehand!

Foreign Language Placement Test
The foreign language department currently offers the following languages: French, German, Greek, Italian*, Japanese*, Latin, Russian, and Spanish.  Foreign language placement tests are available on-line at http://www.ecu.edu/cs-cas/foreign/flrc/placement.cfm in French, German, and Spanish.  Students wishing to obtain placement credit in Greek, Italian, Latin, Russian, or Japanese should contact Jason Walker (walkerj@ecu.edu) in the Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures for more information.

A student’s placement score is emailed to the student once it has been entered into the system.  Students placing into higher-level courses receive credit for lower-level courses once they successfully complete the course in which they placed.  For example, when a student places into and successfully completes SPAN 1003, that student receives credit for SPAN 1001 and SPAN 1002 for a total of 9 credit hours.
