First Year Advising – The Bates Quantitative and Scientific Reasoning Test

All Bates students take the Quantitative and Scientific Reasoning Assessment before First Year Orientation.  If your student has not completed the QSRA, please urge them to do so before classes begin. The QSR test is designed to assess a student’s preparedness for college level math and science class relative to other incoming Bates First-Year students.  The measures an individual student’s preparation for math and science courses in comparison to other Bates students.  The comparison can help you advise students to take more advanced or more preparatory courses in mathematics and the sciences.
