Placement Test Preparation at the Math Café

In order to give new CCAC students a strong start to their college careers, The Math Cafés offer free Placement Test Preparation.

New students can visit a Math Café for a placement test evaluation session. No appointment needed; just walk-in during our regular hours (see above).

What will happen during this session?

  • The Math Café facilitator will use software called PLATO to evaluate the student's current skills.
  • The software will create a custom learning plan based on the student's current needs.
  • The Math Café facilitator will be available to answer the student's questions about PLATO and their learning plan.

Students can complete their learning plan in the Math Café or they may prefer to use PLATO on their own computer (broadband internet access is necessary).

Holiday and Break Hours:

 All Math Café locations will be closed on:

  • Monday, September 2, 2014:  Labor Day
  • Wednesday, November 26, 2014 to Sunday, November 30, 2014: Thanksgiving Break

The Math Cafés are funded by generous grants from The Heinz Endowments and The R.K. Mellon Foundation.
