Interactive video lesson plan for: Compass Algebra part II # 9 to 16 Placement test ACT community college

Activity overview:

For more cool math videos visit my site at or
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

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
