Benefits of Successful Placement

THE TRUE COST OF MATH PLACEMENT

A math placement program can have far reaching effects on both students and the institution. Students invest thousands of dollars on courses for which they may not be prepared or enroll in courses beneath their ability and delay their time to graduation. Institutions spend millions of dollars recruiting students, hiring faculty, maintaining classrooms, advising and other resources. What happens to that money spent when students fail or withdrawal? Have you evaluated what these changes could mean for your institution?

Benefits of Successful Placement to the Institution
  • Increased STEM enrollments
  • Better knowledge of what courses and content your students need
  • Accurate hiring of faculty and classroom scheduling
  • Maximizing student turnout and class participation
  • Increased retention of students at the institution
  • Increased state funding due to higher graduation rates
  • Lower advising costs
  • Lower admissions/registrar/services setup costs
