Quantitative Reasoning Assessment

The Quantitative Reasoning Assessment is a 30 item multiple choice test designed to assess your quantitative literacy. Your performance on the test will help us assess your preparation for college-level courses that include quantitative content. Your score, along with a statistical analysis of the set of scores of all incoming students, is sent to your adviser so that he or she can advise you about course selection and support your academic work at Bates. In addition, all students’ scores—after the names of the students have been removed—will be used as a baseline by Bates College as we assess the “Q course” requirement of Bates’ curriculum. The goal is to identify the types of courses and experiences that are most effective for improving quantitative literacy.
