Recently I have spent quite a bit of time looking at college math placement tests. I have produced two publications that will interest you and your students.

This is an IAE Blog entry associated with the much longer IAE-pedia entry listed below.

Exploring the College Math Placement Testing Process available at http://iae-pedia.org /Exploring_the_College_Math_Placement_Testing_Process.

This IAE-pedia article discusses a wide variety of math placement tests and other math tests. Designed for secondary school math teachers and their students. Also oriented toward elementary school math teachers, teachers of math teachers, and parents of students of high school students. Includes (and discusses) a number of pre-algebra questions.

PS:

The following IAE Blog entry that I wrote a little over a month ago is proving to be a huge success. Spend a minute reading it and please help to spread the word.
