Math Assessments

There are 3 possible math assessments. You will choose which test to take based upon your RCC degree pathway.

The Arithmetic Test has three types of questions:

  1. Operations with whole numbers and fractions
    • Including: addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, recognizing equivalent fractions and mixed numbers, and estimating.
  2. Operations with decimals and percentages
    • Including: addition, subtraction, multiplication and division with decimals, percent problems, recognition of decimals, fraction and percent equivalencies, estimation.
  3. Applications and Problem Solving
    • Including: rate, percent, and measurement problems, simple geometry, distribution of a quantity into its fractional parts.

The Elementary Algebra Test has three types of questions:

  1. Integers and rational numbers, computation with integers and negative rationals, the use of absolute values, ordering
  2. Operations with algebraic expressions using evaluation of simple formulas and expressions; adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing monomials and polynomials; evaluation of positive rational roots and exponents, simplifying algebraic fractions, factoring.
  3. Solution of equations, inequalities, and word problems; solving linear equations and inequalities; solution of quadratic equations by factoring; verbal problems in an algebraic context, geometric reasoning and graphing; the translation of written phrases into algebraic expressions.

The College Level Math Test assesses intermediate algebra through pre-calculus. Including:

  • Algebraic operations: simplifying rational algebraic expressions, factoring, expanding polynomials, manipulating roots and exponents.
  • Solutions of equations: solution of linear and quadratic equations and inequalities, equation systems, other algebraic equations.
  • Coordinate geometry: plane geometry, the coordinate plane, straight lines, conics, sets of points in the plane, graphs of algebraic functions.
  • Applications and other algebra topics: complex numbers, series and sequences, determinants, permutations and combinations, fractions, word problems.
  • Functions and trigonometry: polynomials, algebraic, exponential, logarithmic and trigonometric functions.
