Ready, Set, Placement Test!

As you start to think about your spring 2013 schedule, you should also be sure that you have completed all necessary placement exams. Because Spring 2013 registration is around the corner, you will need to make sure you have the appropriate placement before you can register for certain courses.

The College of Management Writing Assessment (CMWA)

If you plan to take either BC 230 or BC 290, you will need to take the College of Management Writing Assessment (CMWA).

The Math Placement Exam

If you plan to take your first math course at UMB, or your first math course in over a year, you will need to take the Math Placement Exam (MPE). Your MPE results will expire within a year, so if you took the test, but did not take a course, a more than a year has passed, you’ll need to retest.

Foreign Language Testing

If you plan to take a foreign language course, you may also need to take a placement exam. It is wise to consult with the department offering the language to assess if you need a test, and which test to take, especially if you have any previous experience of any kind with the language. If you are specifically interested in the Spanish Placement exam, please visit this site.

The CMWA, MPE and Spanish placement exams are offered through the UMass Boston Testing Center.

Comments Off on MAP ID Walk-In Hours

MAP ID Walk-In Hours

All College of Management students should have a Management Achievement Program (MAP) ID card.  This is different than your UMass Boston ID card.  This fall, all students who are new to CM will need to have their photo taken for this ID card, but any CM student who never got a MAP ID (or barcode, as was the previous system) should plan to get one during MAP ID Walk-In Hours:

  • Monday – Friday: 9-10 AM
  • Monday – Thursday: 2-4 PM

Stop by the College of Management Undergraduate Program Office (McCormack Hall, fifth floor, room 610)  during these times to get your MAP ID.  It is quick, easy, and helps us make sure you are getting all your MAP Miles.

Comments Off on Online Math Tutorials – The Khan Academy

Online Math Tutorials – The Khan Academy

As a CM student, you may be enrolled in MATH 134 (Managerial Calculus) or another course that leads up to MATH 134, depending on your math preparation before entering UMass Boston. Many students can find math a challenging subject to master, and utilize resources such as Professor Office Hours, the Math Resource Center Workshops or one-on-one tutoring. If you aren’t utilizing these on campus resources and are feeling lost or behind in your math class, you should start reaching out for help on campus now. It is not too late to ask for help.

If the on-campus resources aren’t enough for you, look online! One website that can help is the Khan Academy. The Khan Academy is a free website with a large collection of educational tutorial videos. The videos vary in length and walk you through specific topics and subtopics in many subjects, including math. There are even ways to practice the material online and track your progress if you choose create an account. The Khan Academy is a general resource used around the world and not specific to UMass Boston courses or course content. You may find some areas of the website more helpful than others because it is a general resource. The online tutorials could, however, be another way to supplement your on-campus support to help you succeed in math this semester.

Comments Off on Reminder: MAPWorks Survey Deadline is Tomorrow

Reminder: MAPWorks Survey Deadline is Tomorrow

The MAP-Works Survey helps you and your advisors understand the elements that impact your social and academic success here at UMass Boston.  The University has invested in this program as a tool to help aid in student success – but we need YOUR input to make it as effective as possible here at UMass Boston.  On October 1, all students were emailed a link and information about this survey, requesting that it be completed by tomorrow, October 15, when it closes.

When you link to the survey, you should use your full UMass Boston email address with @umb.edu and password to log in.  The survey will only be available October 1-15, 2012 – so you are encouraged to take the survey NOW!

And of course there are incentives for you to complete the survey:

  • You will be entered in a raffle to win Priority Registration for the Spring 2013 semester.  Twenty students will win a chance to register for spring classes before anyone else – and you know how those CM classes can fill up!
  • You get 25 MAP Miles.  This might not sound like a lot, but when you calculate 75% of you miles, you may find it comes to an odd number – and these 25 miles might make the difference you need to reach this requirement.

If you were a student who took this as part of the pilot launch in the spring 2012 semester, you should still take again now.

So What is MAPWorks?

The MAP-Works Survey helps you and your advisors understand the elements that impact your social and academic success here at UMass Boston.  The University has invested in this program as a tool to help aid in student success.  On October 1, all students were emailed a link and information about this survey, requesting that it be completed by October 15, when it closes. 

Note: Despite the similarity in names, this survey is not related to the College of Management’s Management Achievement Program (MAP).

There are benefits to taking the survey:

  • Help us help you: Survey results will help advisors and administrators assess trends in student needs which may serve as guideposts to developing additional resources for success.
  • Help yourself: The Survey will give you and your advisor insights to your goals so we can develop a plan together to help you stay on track reaching them.

And of course there are incentives for you to complete the survey:

  • You will be entered in a raffle to win Priority Registration for the Spring 2013 semester.  Twenty students will win a chance to register for spring classes before anyone else – and you know how those CM classes can fill up!
  • You get 25 MAP Miles.  This might not sound like a lot, but when you calculate 75% of you miles, you may find it comes to an odd number – and these 25 miles might make the difference you need to reach this requirement.
