Weekly Preview: December 2 - 6

Welcome back from Thanksgiving Break!

There will be a Basic Math R1 Exemption Test on Monday, December 2 at 7:00pm in Marcus 131.  Passing the R1 exam (at least 12 out of 20 correct) will satisfy the R1 requirement for graduation but will not result in the awarding of any credits.  A student ID and a #2 pencil are required. A calculator is recommended. There is no limit on the number of times a student may take this test. The focus of this exam is to measure knowledge of basic math skills.

There will be a Writing Placement & Exemption Test on Wednesday, December 4 at 5:30pm in Bartlett 206.  The Placement Test asks students to respond in essay format to a short text (200-300 words).  Placement essays should demonstrate clear organization, relevant support and examples, and an adequate understanding of sentence structure.  The placement test may only be taken once.  For more information on the writing placement test, call 413-545-0610 or email the Writing Program at

Friday, December 6 is the last day of classes.  Did you check your finals schedule and clear up any conflicts?  Read our earlier post to find out what to do if you have two exams scheduled at the same time or three or more finals on the same day.
