Math Competency Testing – (MECA)

Students who place into levels of math below Precalculus Algebra may take a competency exam to attempt a higher math placement. The tests described below are paper and pencil tests consisting of 30 questions with 2 hours allotted for completion of each test. The completed test, including all written work from the student, is submitted to a team of math faculty for evaluation. Each MECA exam may only be taken once.

1. MECA010 may be taken by students placed in MTH010. If they achieve a score of 75% or higher, they can enroll in MTH100. Students MAY use any type of calculator they wish, as long as its only function is that of a calculator. Students may NOT use a tablet or phone calculator app.

2. MECA100 may be taken by students placed in MTH100 OR passed MECA010 OR achieved a “C” or better in MTH011 or in the MTH016-019 series. If they achieve a score of 70% or higher, they may enroll in MTH140,
MTH142, MTH150, or MTH160.

Please note that if a student passes a MECA exam, they MAY take the next higher MECA exam. The student must start with the MECA which fits with their ACT/COMPASS/Accuplacer placement, but with consecutive passing results could take subsequent MECA exams and ultimately be placed in MTH140, MTH142, MTH150, or MTH160.
