Placement Testing

Murray State University and the Council on Post-Secondary Education recognize that an ACT score below benchmark may not always reflect a student’s ability. Therefore, free placement testing is available to provide an alternate test score for possible placement out of developmental courses. Tests in English, math, and reading are offered during Freshman Orientation sessions.

Beginning Fall 2017, all Pathways to Success students will be placed into their mathematics class based on their ALEKS PPL test score.  Pathways to Success students will also be placed into their English and Reading classes based on their Writing and Reading KYOTE scores.
