Multiple Measures Assessment for General Education Mathematics/Quantitative Reasoning

Based on the systemwide assessment standards for GE mathematics/quantitative reasoning below, freshmen shall enroll in appropriate general education mathematics/quantitative reasoning courses during their first academic year unless the requirement has been fulfilled.

Students who have met the following requirements have fulfilled the GE Math/Quantitative Reasoning requirement and are permitted to enroll in the next level of math:

  • A score of 3 or above on the College Board Advanced Placement Calculus AB or Calculus BC tests
  • A score of 3 or above on the College Board Advanced Placement Statistics test
  • A score of 4 or above on the International Baccalaureate Mathematics Higher Level (HL)
  • A score of 50 or above on the College Board College Level Examination Program (CLEP) Calculus, College Algebra, College Algebra-Trigonometry, Pre-Calculus, or Trigonometry
  • Completion and transfer to the CSU of the credits for a college course that satisfies the CSU General Education requirement in mathematics/quantitative reasoning, provided such a course was completed with a grade of C- or better

Students who are STEM majors who have met the following requirements are ready to enroll in a course that meets the GE Math/Quantitative Reasoning requirement:

A result of 'Standard Exceeded: Ready for CSU or participating CCC college-level coursework in mathematics' on the CAASPP Early Assessment Program (EAP) exam
A score of 570 or above on the mathematics section of the new SAT Reasoning Test
A score of 550 or above on the mathematics section of the old SAT Reasoning Test

%u2022%09A score of 550 or above on the SAT Subject Test in Mathematics (level 1 or level 2)

A score of 23 or above on the ACT Mathematics test
Completion of a 12th grade mathematics course beyond algebra 2 with a grade of C- or better and a score of 520-560 on the new SAT mathematics test or a score of 490-540 on the old SAT mathematics test
Completion of a 12th grade mathematics course beyond algebra 2 with a grade of C- or better and a score of 20-22 on the ACT Mathematics test
A result of 'Standard Met: Conditionally Ready for CSU or participating CCC college-level coursework in mathematics' on the CAASPP Early Assessment Program (EAP) exam AND completion of a 12th grade mathematics course with a grade of C- or better
