Introduction The sample of students whose records were analyzed in the Math Placement Test study published by the Office of Institutional Assessment and Testing earlier this month contained very few students who had taken the Basic Algebra level of the placement test. Therefore, another sample of students was drawn to in order to investigate the relationship of Basic Algebra Test scores to final mathematics course grade and to predict the probability a student has of passing (receiving a grade of c- or better) Math 102 or Math 151 depending upon the score he or she earned on the Basic Algebra Test.
