Algebra 1 teachers typically administer the High School Mathematics Readiness, HS45A15, at the beginning of their course. In subsequent months, they may again administer HS45A15 to measure progress towards supporting foundational understanding. In later months of the school year, they typically administer the Geometry Readiness, GR45D17, which provides information about much of the same foundational knowledge, but also include topics introduced in Algebra 1.
High School readiness test topics assessed:
* Integers * Fractions * Decimals; Percents; Absolute Value * Exponents & Square Roots; Scientific Notation * Linear Equations & Inequalities * Functions and their Representations * Geometry * Data Analysis & Probability & Statistics
In addition to Math 8 items, the following MDTP field-tested tasks are suitable for Algebra 1 students:
