The MAA has partnered with Maplesoft, a leading provider of high-performance software tools for engineering, science, and mathematics, to create a suite of web-based mathematics placement tests. The test content is developed by the MAA, and delivered using Maplesoft's Maple TA platform.
The MAA-Maplesoft Placement Test Suite dramatically enhances the ability of colleges and universities to assess students’ knowledge of math. Given the Web-based nature of the system, it is also an ‘anytime-anywhere’ system, providing convenient access for students and saving valuable time for institutions. Universities can place their students in the right courses quickly, easily, and at a fraction of the cost associated with traditional placement tests.
Sales and marketing of the MAA-Maplesoft Placement Test Suite are managed by Maplesoft. Depending on the number of students and the licensing option, pricing can be as low as $2 per student.
