Help us determine which math class is right for you by taking a math assessment.
All new students receive a math placement after they have paid their enrollment deposit. Placement is determined by their highest SAT math score or ACT scores if SAT scores are unavailable.
Not everyone is required to take the math assessment. You will receive a letter stating your eligibility or requirement for taking the assessment. Students who take the assessment include:
The following is a list of minimum system requirements for access to the math assessment. It is recommended that the assessment be taken on a PC or laptop, not a tablet or smartphone.
Browser  OS 
Internet Explorer® 11  Windows 
Firefox®  Windows, macOS, Linux 
Google Chrome™  Windows, macOS, Linux, Android 
Safari®  macOS, iOS 
Möbius does not support Microsoft Edge. Please use Chrome, Firefox or Internet Explorer 10 or newer.
You must begin with Practice; it may be taken as many times as needed to feel comfortable with the format.
You will be emailed login information once you are notified of your provisional placement. You will not be able to complete the assessment until you have received this email.
To access the assessment, visit the Möbius login page.
User login: full @widener.edu email address
Password: date of birth without leading zeros. (m/d/yyyy)
Be sure to review the technical requirements above before beginning.
As an undergraduate accepted student, if you are required to take the assessment or you are challenging your provisional placement, you must complete the assessment before attending Pride Experience I: Summer Registration.
The Assessment closes on August 1st.
The assessment is a series of timed question sets: Each set must be completed within the time allowed. Progress cannot be saved during the set; however, you should take a break between each set.
Question Sets  # of Questions  General Assessment  Extended Time Assessment 
Practice  no limit of attempts  25  30 mins  45 mins 
Algebra & Retake  25  30 mins  45 mins 
Precalculus & Retake  25  30 mins  45 mins 
Calculus & Retake  15  20 mins  30 mins 
You cannot retake the full assessment in its entirety but can retake a section if you score less than 50% on that section. If you score less than 50% on a retake, your assessment will be finished at the current section and you will not need to continue to the next section. If you score more than 50% on a section, you should proceed directly to the next section.
Widener's Academic Support Services department is here to assist with testing accommodation requirements. Please contact 6104991266 or disabilities@widener.edu for more information.
Your mathematics level is determined based on how many questions sets you complete.
The level corresponds with the level needed for the courses listed below, under, "How do I know what course I have to take after I complete the assessment?"
Students can check their results on Widener's student portal about 2 to 3 days after results are submitted from the assessment. Go to Test Summary. If you have not finished the assessment, the provisional level will be shown.
The list below indicates the prerequisite level for the courses listed. The mathematics courses you are required to take will vary depending on your major. Please check with your advisor.
Level 1, 2  MATH 101 Fundamental Mathematics
Level 3  MATH 111 Mathematical Ideas I
Level 3  MATH 112 Mathematical Ideas II
Level 3  MATH 114 Basic Probability
Level 3  MATH 116 Nature of Mathematics
Level 3  MATH 117 Elementary Functions
Level 3  MATH 120 Precalculus
Level 3  MATH 151 Elementary Discrete Mathematics I
Level 4  MATH 118 Elementary Calculus I
Level 4  MATH 131 Calculus with Review I
Level 5  MATH 141 Calculus I
The final grade achieved will replace any provisional placement, regardless if it is higher or lower.
