Step 2: Math Placement Assessments
AR does not have a math level lower than Algebra 1, therefore all applicants will be required to take a math placement assessment. This assessment is meant to determine Algebra 1 readiness. Testing dates are yet to be determined, you will be contacted by the AR office after your application is submitted to arrange for a Math Placement Exam date. Students may have the opportunity to retest if necessary.
During the placement test, students will not be allowed to use a calculator and all work needs to be done on the assessment sheet. Below are key concepts that the students should be able to do:
- Order of Operations
- Combining Like Terms
- Adding, Subtracting, Multiplying, Dividing positive and negative numbers
- Solving equations in one variable
- Graphing points
- Graphing Lines
(There are 7 sections, but a general knowledge of the first 5 is sufficient.)
There will be an option later for students to test into Geometry, but that will only be after the interview process.
Step 3: Interview
Once the student passes the Math Placement test, an interview is scheduled to determine whether or not AR will be the best fit.
