Sign up to take the CMWA!

The College of Management Writing Assessment (CMWA) is the placement exam used to place students in either BC 230 or BC 290. If you have completed 30 credits or more and finished ENGL 102, you should take the CMWA now! The CMWA will be available throughout the next few months to help student place into BC 230 and BC 290 before Summer and Fall classes begin, but the earlier you take the CMWA, the sooner you will be able to enroll in BC 230 or BC 290.

If you need to access the sign-ups for the CMWA, and don’t already see it in your Blackboard LEARN account, please fill out the CMWA Registration Form. Once you have completed the CMWA Registration Form, in about a week you will be given access to the CMWA page in Blackboard LEARN, where you can select your preferred test date for the CMWA. Students must RSVP online for a CMWA exam by using the CMWA Sign-up sheets in Blackboard LEARN in order to take the exam.

Questions about the CMWA? See the College of Management Writing Assessment Blog Page or contact the College of Management at 617-287-7760.

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.
