## Test Your Strength - AB Calculus

Purchase Options

You finish the AP® course syllabus and start to review. How do you know what concepts to stress? How do students know the areas in which they are weak and which they are strong?

Test Your Strength is a practice test intended to ascertain the areas of strength and weakness for each student.  This multiple choice exam is intended for students to take at home. Students email the answers to you (or bring in an answer sheet) and, using an included Excel spreadsheet, the exam is instantly graded. And in addition, a form is inmmediately generated that provides a detailed analysis of every AB calculus skill and how well the student understands it. The analysis is further broken down to differential calculus and integral calculus problems.  It is also broken down into non-calculator and calculator problems.

Test Your Strength is a diagnostic tool. The exam has 50 multiple-choice questions, 35 of which do not allow the use of calculators. It covers all aspects of the current AB curriculum in proportion to their importance in the course and on the AP® exam.  For instance, an important topic like function analysis is covered multiple times while a less important topic like optimization is covered only one or two times. By keeping track of how many questions a student answers correctly within each topic, a table is constructed containing all the important topics of AB calculus and how the student performs in each.  The table is constructed instantly upon input of the 50 answers and a teacher can grade an entire class in just 15 minutes.

And while students see the areas in which they need to work, you can also get an idea of the areas in which the class needs work.

This is not intended to be a practice AP® exam. It is a diagnostic tool to aid students and teachers in those vital 3 weeks before the actual AP® exam.
