Math 8 teachers typically administer the Math 8 Readiness Test, 8R40A15, at the beginning of their course. In subsequent months, they may again administer 8R40A15 to measure progress towards supporting foundational understanding. In later months of the school year, they typically administer the High School Readiness Test, HS45A15, which provides information about much of the same foundational knowledge, as well as topics introduced in Math 8.
Math 8 readiness test topics assessed * Integers * Fractions * Decimals, percents, absolute value * Proportions * Literals, equations * Geometric measurement, coordinate geometry * Data analysis, probability, statistics
The following MDTP field-tested tasks are suitable for Math 8 students:
