Skills Assessment for T-courses

T101 Math for Elementary Teachers

This Skills Assessment Test is designed to assess basic arithmetic skills with whole numbers, fractions, decimals and order of operations. T101, T102, and T103 are designed not to teach basic elementary school mathematics, but rather take these skills and study them conceptually. The idea behind the Skills Assessment Test is to be sure the student has mastery of the prerequisite knowledge to be successful in these classes.

Preparing to Take the Skills Test

  • The Skills Assessment Test SHOULD NOT be taken without first working through some of the reviews below.
  • While taking the test students should also check their work and make sure fractions are reduced before moving to the next questions. The incorrect multiple choice answers were obtained from student work on previous versions of the test which were not in multiple choice format.
  • It is not uncommon for almost half of students to fail the first time the test is taken. Therefore, students should review extensively before taking the test.
  • If a student does not pass the test on the third attempt, the student cannot register for T101 for the upcoming semester. The student must then wait until the next registration period and only has 1 attempt for each future semester.

How to Take the Skills Test

  • Schedule an appointment to take the exam with the Student Development Center, UCS 203, (812) 941-2312
  • Picture Identification is Required to take the test
  • The test has 31 questions. At least 27 questions must be answered correctly to pass.
  • No calculator is permitted for the test.
  • Pencil and paper will be provided to work problems.
  • Students must turn in all paper work after taking the test.
  • If a student fails the test twice, the SKILLS ASSESSMENT TO RETEST must be completed and turned in to qualify to take the test a third time.
  • If a student does not pass the test on the third attempt, the student cannot register for T101 for the upcoming semester. The student must then wait until the next registration period and only has 1 attempt for each future semester.
