The Mathematics Readiness Test (MRT) is a test of basic high school math skills, including algebra and trigonometry. All new first-year and transfer students must take the MRT before coming to Orientation. When you come to Orientation you will meet with an academic advisor who will help you choose an appropriate mathematics class, taking into account your academic interests and intended course of study, as well as your score on the Math Readiness Test. See score interpretation guidelines for more information.
Prepare for the MRT. There is a set of Practice and Review Problems that you can work on at your leisure before taking the test. The practice problems have built-in help, including video tutorials you can watch if you need to review a topic, and you get several tries for each question. You can log out at any time and come back later to continue working on the practice problems.
Taking the MRT. The test itself is timed, and must be completed in one sitting. It will take about 45 minutes to complete, and must be completed without any outside assistance. You will get get two tries for each question on the test. Be sure to have a pencil or pen and plenty of scrap paper on hand before you begin. Do not use a calculator.
The MRT is administered through an online homework system called WebAssign, which is used in many Math classes at UVM. To access the test, you will first need to set up a WebAssign account.
