Subject: Re: Readiness test for algebra

Are there any schools in your area that already use an algebra test? If so, that would be your best bet. We have developed our own test for Algebra II. It does take a year or two to determine how credible it is, comparing final grades with test scores, but it is worth the time and usually fits your needs perfectly. Our test is also used by our science department, because it is a better indicator of how students will perform in our science courses than their science tests! Good luck.
