Algebra Placement Test

The Algebra Placement Test is composed of items from three curricular areas: elementary

algebra, coordinate geometry, and intermediate algebra. Each of these three areas is further

subdivided into a number of more specific content areas. Overall, the Algebra Placement Test

includes items from more than 20 content areas; however, the majority of test questions fall

within the following eight content areas:

1. Substituting Values into Algebraic Expressions

2. Setting Up Equations for Given Situations

3. Basic Operations with Polynomials

4. Factoring Polynomials

5. Linear Equations in One Variable

6. Exponents and Radicals

7. Rational Expressions

8. Linear Equations in Two Variables

The COMPASS Mathematics Tests are organized around five principal content domains:

numerical skills/prealgebra, algebra, college algebra, geometry, and trigonometry. To ensure

variety in the content and complexity of items within each domain, COMPASS includes

mathematics items of three general levels of cognitive complexity: basic skills, application, and

analysis. A basic skills item can be solved by performing a sequence of basic operations. An

application item involves applying sequences of basic operations to novel settings or in complex

ways. An analysis item requires students to demonstrate a conceptual understanding of the

principles and relationships relevant to particular mathematical operations. Items in each of the

content domains sample extensively from these three cognitive levels.

Students are permitted to use calculators on all current Windows® and Internet versions of

COMPASS Mathematics Tests. Calculators must, however, meet ACT's specifications,

which are the same for COMPASS and the ACT Assessment. These specifications are

updated periodically and can be found at ACT's website at

Tried out the canvas response option on @SpiralEducation & it's so awesome! Add text or drawings AND annotate an image! #R10tech

Using @SpiralEducation in class for math review. Student approved! Thumbs up! Thanks.

Absolutely amazing collaboration from year 10 today. 100% engagement and constant smiles from all #lovetsla #spiral

Students show better Interpersonal Writing skills than Speaking via @SpiralEducation Great #data #langchat folks!
