Math Readiness Assessment (MRA)

First Semester Calculus Courses: MTH 121, MTH 131, MTH 141

Students register for their desired exam date using the Navigate app.  

From Spring 2018 through Summer 2021, the University at Buffalo required an ALEKS PPL Assessment to determine readiness of students wishing to enroll in our first semester calculus courses, MTH 121, 131, 141.

Currently, the Math Readiness Assessment (MRA) will be used, affecting registration for course sections of MTH 121, 131, 141.

Continuing students who wish to take MTH 121, 131, 141 will provisionally be able to register for these courses. However, each student will need to obtain a passing score in the new MRA prior to the start of the new semester to avoid being dropped from the course.

For placement into a course offered during the Spring 2023 semester, students will be able to take the online MRA beginning Thursday, November 17, 2022. 

The full list of MRA availabilities can be found through the Navigate App.

Students must register for their desired exam date using the Navigate app.
