The Physics Readiness Test results
are given in the PDF document below (by last 4 digits of SFSU ID) and
are also posted on the bulletin board across from Thornton Hall 118.
Minimum score for a “Pass” was 30. If your score was below 23, you
failed the test and will be dropped from Phys 111 and Phys 112. If you
scored in the range 23-29, your status is “ALEKS”; see “ALEKS Option”
Wait list students (official and unofficial) who passed the Readiness Test will be receiving an add permit (e-mailed to your @sfsu.edu e-mail address) IF you attended class on the first day and turned in an enrollment sheet. You can come to my office and fill out an enrollment sheet if you did not do so on the first day.
If your status is “ALEKS”, you will be dropped from Physics 111 and Physics 112, but are eligible to get an add permit if you sign up for the ALEKS Math Preparation for College Physics on-line course and achieve 80% proficiency by the add deadline. Go to the ALEKS web site
( www.aleks.com/sign_up ) and sign up for course code UWFJC-CAFVU. The cost is $30 for six weeks of access. (When the ALEKS system takes you to the page where you purchase an access code, choose the option “ALEKS Math (6 weeks) $30” if there is no option for “Math Preparation for College Physics.” The instructor may be listed as Dr. Lea; that is fine). If you pursue the ALEKS Option, you should continue attending class, do the homework, take quizzes, etc. Your scores will be recorded.
Test Results (Friday Tests)
If you still need an add permit (and are eligible to add), please be
sure to send me a request with your full name, full student ID number,
and preferred e-mail.
