Math Placement Test

Reviewing for VPT Math

  • The importance of reviewing material that you previously studied cannot be over emphasized. The VPT Math site provides supplemental study materials for the Math Placement Test.
  • The placement test is not an admissions test or an aptitude test.
  • The test measures how well you demonstrate skills. Your score indicates the courses you are prepared to take.
  • Not reviewing before taking the placement test could possibly place you in a course that is lower than your actual skill level, delaying your math sequence by one or more semesters, costing you time and money.
  • Starting your review process early will give you time to practice, so you will hopefully feel more confident in doing your best on the placement test.
  • The VPT Math may also test your pre-calculus knowledge if you demonstrate sufficient skills on Units 0 through 9. This portion of the test will determine if you have the necessary math skills to enroll in calculus courses such as MTH 271 or MTH 173.

Retest Policy

  • One retest is allowed within 12 months of the initial attempt on the Math Virginia Placement Test.
  • If the 12 month retest period expires and the student still has not registered for a math course, the student may test again and retest one more time within the next 12 months start over.
  • Once you enroll in a Math course (including developmental), you may not retest.
  • Test scores are valid for five years.

English Placement Test

Reviewing for VPT English

  • The importance of reviewing material that you previously studied cannot be over emphasized.
  • The placement test is not an admissions test or an aptitude test.
  • The test measures how well you demonstrate skills. Your score indicates the courses you are prepared to take.
  • Not reviewing before taking the placement test could possibly place you in a course that is lower than your actual skill level, costing you time and money.
  • Starting your review process early will give you enough time to practice so that you can feel confident doing your best on the placement test.

Retest Policy

  • One retest is allowed within 12 months of the initial attempt on the English Virginia Placement Test.
  • If you retake the VPT English, your official placement will be determined by the highest essay and multiple choice scores from both of your tests. This may be higher than what is shown on the score sheet from your retest, so it is critical that you meet with your counselor or advisor before registering for English classes.
  • Once you enroll in an English course (including developmental), you may not retest.
  • Test scores are valid for five years.
