Summer Advising – The Bates Quantitative and Scientific Reasoning Assessment

All Bates students take the Quantitative and Scientific Reasoning Assessment before First Year Orientation.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.  Students’ First Year Advisors will explain their test results and suggest appropriate entry level math and science courses based on those results. First Year Advisors will explain the results of the test to students and use them to help students select courses whose demands match their quantitative skills.
