MyMathTest Online Placement

This placement option is only for NEW students planning to enroll in Spring 2018. MyMathTest will be available from October 1, 2017-January 19, 2018.

MyMathTest (MMT)

Pearson MyMathTest is a mathematics placement option available to new freshmen & transfer students who have registered for the spring orientations. Incoming UNT students with degree programs in Mathematics, Science, Engineering, Economics (BS), students who plan to take science/engineering calculus (Math 1710), and students in other degree programs, especially in the College of Business, who have been pre-placed into a math group below their math requirement are expected to take a mathematics placement test PRIOR to their orientation session. The Pearson MMT is a one-time no cost option that is to be taken online; do this at home prior to your orientation session.

This test consists of 25 questions that assess your current proficiency of mathematical content essential for success in your first UNT Math course. The questions are over topics in algebra and trigonometry.

Note: MMT online placement cannot be used to become TSI complete in math. If you are not yet TSI complete in math, you should consult with the Learning Center before attempting MMT online placement.

What if I already have college credit for calculus or precalculus?

If you already have college credit for calculus or pre-calculus as a result of AP credit, IB, dual credit, or other transfer credit, then you do NOT need to take an online placement. However, if you do not expect to receive your AP test scores prior to your scheduled orientation, then you should still complete the MyMathTest placement exam prior to your scheduled orientation session.

Taking the Pearson MyMathTest Online Placement for Spring 2018 Registration

Here are the step-by-step instructions to take the Pearson MyMathTest online placement to determine your mathematics placement for a UNT mathematics course you plan to take in the Spring of 2018 semester:

The Math Department suggests that you access the test by using either Firefox or Google Chrome.

DO NOT TAKE THIS TEST ON A CELL PHONE OR TABLET.

  • Go to http://unt.mylabsplus.com.
  • Log in with your UNT EUID as your username and the password is: mathplacement
  • Once in, log out and click on the "Forgot username and password."
  • Reset only your password to something more secure. Your username remains the same.
  • Log back in with your new credentials and access your test.
  • Before you start the test, perform a browser check to make sure your browser & Adobe Flash Player has the most current version.
  • Enable cookies and pop-ups.

*If you do not know your EUID, you can look it up by logging in to ams.unt.edu.

You will have one attempt to complete the online placement test. Since you have only one attempt, it is important that you allow yourself enough time to complete the MMT in one sitting.

Remember that loss of internet connection, frozen web browser issues or if the test times out prior to submitting your test, this will count as your one attempt. You will not be able to restart the test.

New Freshmen and Transfers: Take the Pearson MMT BEFORE You Attend Orientation

If you are a new UNT freshmen or transfer whose degree plan requires Math 1710: Calculus I, or a math class that is above your pre-placement level, you should take the Pearson MMT before you attend your orientation session. If you do this before your scheduled new student orientation, you will be able to get the best possible advising during your on-campus orientation and will get the best choice of available classes.

UNT Students Demonstrate Integrity

Because UNT students are expected to behave ethically at all times, we trust you to work through the MMT online placement program with the integrity expected from UNT students. You should do all the work in the MMT yourself without making use of books or web searches during the assessment portions of the program. You should NOT use a calculator. Remember, if you try to cheat the math placement system, you may end up enrolling in a class for which you are not prepared and therefore likely to fail. Be honest and make the most of this opportunity.
