The MAPP exam is the Measure of Academic Proficiency and Progress developed by ETS to measure students’ general education skills. It is designed to evaluate program improvement efforts and overall learning outcomes. The state of Missouri requires universities to assess general education using a nationally-normalized instrument. MAPP allows Southeast to meet the state requirements and also its internal requirements to determine general education competencies of students at Southeast.
The MAPP exam allows Southeast to gauge the general education skills acquired by a student at Southeast. Scores received as an exiting student are compared to scores received as a beginning student to show how the student’s general education skills have increased during their time at Southeast and thus how Southeast is meeting their educational objectives.
The MAPP exam is a 2-hour multiple-choice test taken via computer.
The MAPP is required of students when entering the university and again the semester of their graduation.
Yes, online students are required to complete the MAPP exams as listed above. If the
online student is unable to attend the regular scheduled sessions, the student may
request a proctor to administer the exam near his/her location. Testing Services will
coordinate proctoring procedures with the student. The exam must be taken during the
normal business hours: Monday through Friday, between 8:00am and 4:30pm. Online-students
may contact Testing Services at 573-651-2836 or email@example.com

Failing to take the MAPP 1 Exam during the first semester by the deadline date will result in a hold placed on the student's record restricting registration for the following semester courses. Make-up dates will not be available until last month of the semester.
Graduation applications will not be approved until the MAPP 2 Exam is scheduled or completed. However, failing to complete the MAPP 2 Exam will result in not completing the degree requirements, in which the diploma will not be generated.
