CPL: Initial Assessment GEQL 160
Mathematical Connections Assessment
The Mathematical Connections CPL assessment consists of two sections, representing data and predicting data. Each part consists of word problem applications.
- Using descriptive statistics (mean, median, mode) to represent a set a data
- Using graphs (bar graph, line graph, circle graph, histogram, frequency polygon) to represent a set of 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 principle, permutation, combination) to make predictions
The assessment is not timed. As a guideline, most students spend about an hour and one-half for the assessment. Additional time is available if needed. You may use a calculator and a 4” x 6” notecard on the assessment.
Below is a link to a sample assessment. The sample is designed to reflect the length and level of expectation of the CPL assessment. Specific context and data presentations will vary on the actual CPL assessment.
