# Placement Tests

## Students are often required to take a placement test to determine which math course they should take. There is a relationship between a student’s placement score and the grade that student will receive in the class.

## How are these placement scores determined?

## Here is a table of the data for a section of MAT 171. In the table x is the placement score and y is the final 171 average.

x | 61 | 40 | 19 | 25 | 61 | 48 | 38 | 56 | 33 | 55 | 85 | 25 | 15 | 83 |

y | 63 | 80 | 36 | 61 | 89 | 81 | 66 | 76 | 70 | 94 | 92 | 73 | 55 | 86 |
