Each of the placement tests are used to place you out of a class. So if we are talking about the Algebra I placement exam, we are talking about taking and passing out of Algebra I, not into Algebra I.
If you wish to start with Geometry in the summer or fall:
You will need to take and pass the Algebra I placement test.
The Algebra I placement test has a one-hour time limit.
If you wish to start with Algebra II in the summer or fall:
You will need to take and pass both the Algebra I placement test and the Geometry placement test.
Each test has a one-hour time limit.
If you wish to start with Accelerated Algebra II in the fall:
You will need to take and pass the Algebra I placement test, the Geometry placement test, and the Accelerated Algebra Supplemental test.
The Algebra I and Geometry placement tests are one hour each. The supplemental test is allotted 30 minutes. Therefore you need to set aside two-and-a-half hours for tests that morning.
If you wish to start with either Precalculus or Accelerated Precalculus in the summer or fall:
You will need to take and pass both the Geometry and Algebra II placement tests. We will assume you can manage the Algebra I level material and not require you to take that test that day; however, if you fail both the Geometry and Algebra II placement tests, then we may need to revisit that and you may need to come back and take the Algebra I test.
Each test has a one-hour time limit.
Placement into the Accelerated class requires a very good score on the Geometry placement exam and a near perfect score on the Algebra II placement exam.
If you wish to start with some form of Calculus in the summer or fall:
You will need to take and pass both the Algebra II and Precalculus placement exams. We will assume you can manage the Algebra I and Geometry material and not require you to take those tests that day; however, if you fail both tests, then we may need to revisit what will need to happen with your placement.
Each test has a one-hour time limit.
If you do pass both tests, the level of Calculus you are placed in depends on how well you do on the tests.
