Placement Exams

Algebra Placement Test - all students

All incoming freshmen are asked to sit for our Algebra exam. This exam will allow us to get a better understanding of each student’s math skills as well as allow students to potentially test out of part or all of Algebra I. Students who test out of topics in the Algebra curriculum will be given a personalized scope and sequence which would only include those topics they need to prove mastery on. In addition, if they prove mastery on all of the Algebra content they will be placed in Geometry or more advanced math.

Geometry Challenge Test - optional

Students who are currently taking Geometry in their 8th-grade year may choose to also sit for our Geometry exam in addition to our Algebra exam. For this option, please select two dates to come in and test by filling out the form twice. Please specify which test you are taking each day when you fill out the form.

Honors designation in Algebra and Geometry is available and open to all students. Opportunities are embedded within the course and students have the option to challenge themselves with the honors curriculum. The honors designation will be assigned when the student has completed the course once minimum qualifications are met. Teachers will have more detailed information for students at the beginning of the school year.

We are currently planning to have all frosh students do an in-person Tech Training and math placement exam the week of June 8-12. We will follow all CDC guidelines and state mandates, so this plan is subject to change - we appreciate your flexibility! Our current plan is to have each student select one day to come to campus from 3:00 - 5:30 PM. and meet in small groups to receive and set up their iPad and take their exam. Please sign up for an appointment time by Friday, May 8. There are a limited number of spots for each date and they will be filled on a first come, first served basis.

We ask that your student bring their iPad case (we have an approved case and other tech accessories in stock in our school store) to their training. Please refer to our iPad program for full details about approved cases and accessories. If you have questions or concerns about the in-person format, please reach out to me for alternative ways to complete this requirement.

The math placement exam will allow us to get a better understanding of each student’s math skills and allow students to potentially test out of part or all of Algebra I. Students who test out of topics in the Algebra curriculum will be given a personalized scope and sequence which would only include those topics they need to prove mastery on. In addition, if they prove mastery on all of the Algebra content they will be placed in Geometry or a more advanced math course. You will receive placement exam results the week of June 15 and, at that time, we will send math summer school placement and registration information for those interested. At this time we are planning for a combination of in-person/virtual learning opportunities, but, again, this is subject to change as the situation evolves. If you have questions about the exam, please contact our Math Department Chair, Lesley Schooler, for more information.

Please review the course descriptions for Algebra I, Geometry, and other Mathematics courses

 

Language Challenge Test - optional

If you are interested in taking Spanish 2 (or beyond), or French 2 (or beyond), you will need to sign-up for our virtual placement test by this Friday, May 8. Tests will take place the week of May 25-29, and you will receive an email with an afterschool appointment time and more information about the test the week of May 18. Please note, if you previously signed up for a placement test during your original enrollment, you will need to fill out this new form, as information has changed. The placement exam will test students’ reading, writing, listening, and speaking skills in the target language.

Please review the course descriptions for Spanish 2, French 2, and all Modern Language courses.
