Mathematics Test Directions

Today you will be taking a mathematics test. This test will provide information about how well you understand certain mathematics topics. Please try to do your best and do not worry if there are questions that seem unfamiliar to you. You will be allowed to use scratch paper and a calculator if you have one to help you complete this test.

The test questions will appear one at a time. On the screen, you will see the question and four or five possible answers. The computer only will allow you to choose one answer for each question. Choose the best possible answer. There is no penalty for guessing.

You can use the mouse to answer the questions and move through the test. To answer the question, put the pointer over the button next to the best answer and click once. To move to the next question, put the pointer over the Next button and click once. You also can go back to questions you already have looked at by putting your pointer over the Back button.

Try not to get stuck on any one question while you are taking the test. If you are stumped on an item, skip to the next question by clicking on the Next button and return to it later. Sometimes a fresh look may help you determine the answer. If you are still having trouble with an item, try to narrow down the list of possible solutions and make an educated guess. You will not lose any points for guessing.

Thank you very much for your participation and effort. Now… take your time, and good luck!
