Math Placement Assessment Online Instructions

 

The Math Placement Assessment will function on most Windows and Mac based systems and in many browsers.  We recommend a mouse to click on the appropriate answers and to navigate the assessment, not the keyboard. No calculators are allowed on this assessment; the questions are designed to evaluate your math ability without a calculator. Remember, this assessment determines which math class you should begin with in order to succeed in college; cheating or using a calculator on this exam will only hurt your college career and possibly keep you from graduating in a timely manner.

Once you are at a computer and are ready to take the assessment, do the following:

  • Type in the URL web address: https://lhu.desire2learn.com. Make certain you are ready to begin before continuing!
  • Click on the LHU User Login button and log in with the same username and password you use for LHU email and myHaven.
  • Once logged in successfully, click on Quicklinks, then Self Registration. Then, in the list of available courses, click on the Math Placement Assessment and proceed to follow the on-screen prompts to let yourself into the course.
  • Read announcement carefully and click the software check link. You will see a short quiz for software check. Answer those questions and save your answers before hitting the submit button.   This will take you to the link for Part 1- Math Placement Test (Another way of accessing Part 1- Math Placement test is to click on Assessments and from the drop down list click on Quizzes).
  • Answer the questions in Part 1 – Math Placement Test to the best of your ability. Save your answers and submit your test. If your score is 60% or higher on part 1 then you will see a link to Part 2 of placement test. Similarly, if you have a score 60% or higher in part 2 then you can access part 3 and so on up to part 4.
  • Remember that we do NOT expect you to be able to answer all questions; if you do not know what the question is asking, DO NOT PANIC! Simply leave the question blank and proceed to the next question.
  • At the end of each part, you will be asked to print your score for your record.
  • Finally, after completing the test and viewing and/or printing your results, please close all open windows.

If you have any difficulties, please contact Dr. Denine Simin for assistance.
