Prepare for and take the Placement Tests

It is very important that you study for your placement test. We recommend spending at least two hours reviewing each test area – writing, reading, and math. The North Carolina Diagnostic Assessment and Placement (NC DAP) test taken at Durham Tech may be completed only once within a twelve-month period. Students are eligible for retest on the NC DAP math test if they are within one point of the passing score for any developmental math module (i.e., they earn a score of 6 on the 12-point scale). Eligible students may retest once within a twelve-month period.

Developmental Math Modules:

DMA 010 Operations with Integers
DMA 020 Fractions and Decimals
DMA 030 Proportions/Ratios/Rates/Percentages
DMA 040 Expressions, Linear Equations, Linear Inequalities
DMA 050 Graphs and Equations of Lines
DMA 060 Polynomials and Quadratic Applications
DMA 070* Rational Expressions and Equations
DMA 080*  Radical Expressions and Equations
* These modules are not offered in testing. Students who need MAT 171 or above must show proficiency in DMA 060 or complete DMA 060, 070 and 080


Notes:

  • Each module has 12 questions.
  • In order to show proficiency in each module, students must correctly answer 7 or more questions.
  • Test is un-timed.
  • Average testing time is 2+ hours.
  • No calculators are allowed (one will be provided for each question as the test deems necessary).
