The Calculus examination contains 45 questions to be answered in 90 minutes. Students are not permitted to use a calculator during this exam.  

Sixty percent of the exam focuses on differential calculus and 40% focuses on integral calculus. Algebraic, trigonometric, exponential. logarithmic, and general functions are included. Knowledge of preparatory mathematics is assumed.  

Students should consider taking the exam if they can demonstrate the following abilities:  

  • solving routine problems involving the techniques of calculus
  • solving nonroutine problems involving an understanding of the concepts and applications of calculus.

Computer-based Scoring:

CLEP computer-based (CBT) exams are scored without a penalty for incorrect guessing. The raw score--the number of correct responses--is translated into a scaled score. The scaled scores for CLEP CBT are reported in a range from 20 to 80.

At Ferris, candidates taking the Calculus exam earn credit for a score of 50 or higher.
