Algebra 2 teachers typically administer the Second Year Algebra Readiness, SR45D17, test at the beginning of their course. In subsequent months, they may again administer SR45D17 to measure progress towards supporting foundational understanding. In later months of the school year, they typically administer the Math Analysis/Pre-Calculus Readiness, MR45A06, which provides information about much of the same foundational knowledge, but also include topics introduced in Algebra 2.
Second Year Algebra Readiness test topics assessed
* Exponents & Square Roots; Scientific Notation * Linear Equations & Inequalities * Polynomials and Quadratic Equations; including Complex Numbers * Functions and their Representations * Geometry and Trigonometry * Data Analysis & Probability & Statistics
In addition to Math 8 items, the following MDTP field-tested tasks may be suitable for Algebra 2 students:
