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
