Maths Diagnostic Quiz- MDQ

A Maths Diagnostic Quiz is a self-diagnostic test that allows you to measure your competence in mathematical areas such as basic algebraic manipulations, functions, geometry and solving equations.

A number of quizzes are available to all students via 'My Other Sites' in Blackboard, under 'Maths Diagnostic Quiz' [ORG.106309].

You can take a quiz at any time and immediate feedback will be provided. These quizzes should help you to:

  • assess your maths ability at a basic level
  • determine if you have the necessary skills to study courses with maths content
  • find the right person to contact if you have questions or need assistance
  • work out if you need to adjust your program to allow more time to build maths skills.
