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.

Representing Data

  • 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

 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 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.
