Karen Hindhede, Professor of English stated, “These tools help students self-place based on a variety of multiple measures, such as high school GPA and national assessment scores like the ACT/SAT. Additionally, they are asked questions about their familiarity with particular concepts.”  She added, “The tools should be completed before students see an advisor or register.”
