Online Mathematics Diagnostic Test


The California Mathematics Diagnostic Testing Project offers an online test to help you evaluate your preparation for a university-level precalculus course.

This is a non-binding test to be used by you for diagnostic purposes. There are no specific cutoff scores provided but very low to modest scores indicate the importance of reviewing the related math topics before enrolling in your first math class at UCI.

The best way to use this test is to follow the instructions carefully. This includes taking no more than one hour to complete the test and avoiding use of a calculator, which will give you the truest evaluation of your current proficiency. Please read the test instructions carefully before proceeding and make sure that you have one quiet hour to spend taking the test.

For the greatest benefit to you, take this test as early in summer as possible. This will allow you to take some time to review the topic areas in which you didn’t perform as well, then to retake this online test for a progress report. Solid preparation in prerequisite math courses such as geometry and algebra are invaluable for doing well in later courses such as trigonometry, statistics, and calculus.
