Abstract

In 2007, WPI implemented online Calculus Placement Tests. During the 2007-2008 academic year, a statistical analysis was performed for this new system. The same system was used again in 2008 and this project repeats the previous analysis and also introduces two significant changes to improve the original system. One change reduces the number of tests and simplifies the recommendation algorithm. The second change is a system to tailor the recommendation to each student's intended major and background.
