Math 226 and 227 will have a Basic Skills Test which will cover basic computational skills that you absolutely must be able to do for any class that has Math 226/227 as a prerequisite. There will be one Basic Skills Test for 226 and one Basic Skills Test for 227. The Basic Skills test will be administered and evaluated by computer, with no partial credit, but you may take it twice. A Practice Basic Skills Test will be available on WebAssign containing all the possible problems you could be asked on the actual Basic Skills Test.  Math 226 and 227 will have a Basic Skills Test which will cover basic computational skills that you absolutely must be able to do for any class that has Math 226/227 as a prerequisite.

-The Basic Skills Test will be administered by computer in Whitney Hall, Room G18, using the same software as the WebAssign homework, so you must have a WebAssign key for the Skills Test section before you take the test. For security reasons, you must use the computers provided. You are not assigned a particular time to take the test – you will reserve a time for your test via the following link: [[http://​www.math.binghamton.edu/​ctc|Calculus Testing Center Reservation System]].+/* The Basic Skills Test will be administered by computer in Whitney Hall, Room G18, using the same software as the WebAssign homework, so you must have a WebAssign key for the Skills Test section before you take the test.

-You have a window of two weeks to take it twice, but only one attempt per week. If you wait until the second week the test is offered, you will only get one try. +You have a window of two weeks to take it twice, but only one attempt per week.

Only exact answers are accepted in WebAssign. For example, 1/3 cannot be written as .33 and pi cannot be written as 3.14. No electronic devices are allowed and none may be taken during a lavatory break. Only exact answers are accepted in WebAssign.

-If you try the Basic Skills test more than once, only your highest score is counted. Your best strategy is to take the test during the first week it's offered, so if it doesn'​t go well, you can make another attempt to improve your score in the second week.+If you try the Basic Skills test more than once, only your highest score is counted. ​

To take into account the lack of partial credit, scores on the Skills Test will be rounded up, so that scores between 70% and 79% will count as a 79%, scores between 80% and 89% will be recorded as 89%, and scores 90% to 100% will receive 100%. If a student'​s highest score is lower than 70%, their highest percentage among the attempts will be recorded and will not be rounded up.  To take into account the lack of partial credit, scores on the Skills Test will be rounded up, so that scores between 70% and 79% will count as a 79%, scores between 80% and 89% will be recorded as 89%, and scores 90% to 100% will receive 100%.
