CPL Bypass Assessment for QL 156

Mathematical Connections Assessment (QL 156)

The Assessment and Outreach Center will contact students who are eligible to complete the Mathematical Connections CPL Bypass assessment.

The assessment consists of three sections: representing data, predicting data, and measurement concepts. Each part consists of word problem applications.

Representing Data

  • Using descriptive statistics (mean, median, mode) to represent a set of data
  • Using graphs (bar graph, line graph, circle graph, histogram, frequency polygon) to represent a set of data

Predicting Data

  • Reading and interpreting the normal curve to make predictions
  • Using definition of probability and odds to make predictions
  • Using compound probability to make predictions
  • Using counting concepts (counting principal, permutation, combination) to make predictions

Measurement Concepts

  • Converting measures within and between the American and Metric measurement systems (approximate conversion of common units of length, volume, mass and temperature)
  • Using Pythagorean Theorem to determine unknown lengths
  • Determining geometric quantities of perimeter, area, surface area and volume (2D and 3D figures based on rectangles, triangles and circles)
  • Connecting concepts of volume, capacity and mass

Below is a link to a sample assessment. The sample is designed to reflect the length and level of expectation of the assessment. Geometric shapes, measurement units, and data presentations will vary on the actual assessment.

The assessment is not timed. As a guideline, most students spend about 1.5 hours on the assessment. You may use a calculator and a 4” x 6” notecard on the assessment. You can schedule your appointment below.
