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
A 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
Achievement of a weighted high school GPA >= 3.7
Achievement of a weighted high school mathematics GPA >= 3.5 and 5+ years of mathematics or quantitative reasoning courses
Achievement of a weighted high school mathematics GPA >= 3.5 and completion of an approved senior year course

Students who are Non-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
  • A 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
  • 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 4 years of mathematics or quantitative reasoning courses
  • Achievement of a weighted high school GPA >= 3.7
  • Achievement of a weighted high school GPA >= 3.5 and 4+ years of mathematics or quantitative reasoning courses
  • Achievement of a weighted high school mathematics GPA >= 3.0 and completion of 5+ years of mathematics or quantitative reasoning courses
  • Achievement of a weighted high school mathematics GPA >= 3.0 and completion of an approved senior year course

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 and includes supported instruction:

  • Achievement of a high school mathematics GPA >= 3.3

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

  • Achievement of a high school mathematics GPA >= 3.3
  • Achievement of a high school GPA >= 3.0

Students who have met the following requirements are required to participate in the Early Start Program and are ready to enroll in a course that meets the GE Math/Quantitative Reasoning requirement and includes supported instruction:

  • A score less than 510 on the mathematics section of the new SAT Reasoning test or a score less than 490 on the mathematics section of the old SAT Reasoning test AND a high school GPA <= 3.2
  • A score less than 20 on the ACT Mathematics test AND a high school GPA <= 3.2

Students with an Early Start requirement in mathematics must enroll in a course that satisfies the Mathematics/Quantitative Reasoning breadth of study requirement (B4) in the their first semester of enrollment. (Students admitted in the spring may wait until the following fall if they intend to satisfy the B4 requirement through a stretch course.)

All students with a supported instruction requirement in mathematics may see which B4 courses they are eligible to enroll in by visiting the Course Options Explorer in the Supported Instruction website: http://www.sjsu.edu/supportedinstruction/course-options/math-quantitative-reasoning/explorer.html
