Test Your Strength - ACT®
Give students a full breakdown of their strengths and weaknesses
as they prepare for the ACT®Mathematics Exam
Does one of these fit you?
Test Your Strength is a practice test intended to ascertain the areas of strength and weakness for each student in all areas in which the ACT® math exam focuses. This multiple choice exam is intended for students to take at home. If you are a teacher, students email the answers to you (or bring in an answer sheet) and, using an included Excel spreadsheet, the exam is instantly graded. If you are a student, you take the exam and input your answers to the included Excel spreadsheet, and you get your results immediately.
In addition, a form is inmmediately generated that provides a detailed analysis of every ACT® math skill and how well the student understands it. The analysis is further broken down to the different sections of the exam, whether it is a word problem or pure math, and whether a calculator and/or a graph chart is needed.All of this is done to give a snapshot of the students' mathematical knowledge as they begin to prepare for the ACT®'s.
Test Your Strength is a diagnostic tool. The exam has 72 multiple-choice questions, 42 of which do not allow the use of calculators. It covers all aspects of the current ACT math topics in proportion to their importance on the ACT exam. For instance, an important topic like polynomials, factors, and rational expressions is covered multiple times while a less important topic like complex numbers is covered fewer times. By keeping track of how many questions a student answers correctly within each topic, a table is constructed containing all the important topics within ACT® Math and how the student performs in each. The table is constructed instantly upon input of the 72 answers and a teacher can grade an entire class in just 15 minutes.
This is not intended to be a practice ACT® exam. It is a diagnostic tool to aid students in those vital months before they actually sit for the ACT® exam.
