Exam Details

Readiness exams are designed to test student preparation for taking the class they’ve been placed in. Thus all tests will be reviewing the student’s knowledge in the class’s prerequisite.
 if you have been placed in Algebra 1, your test will primarily cover concepts from prealgebra.
 if you have been placed in Geometry, your test will primarily cover concepts from Algebra 1.
 if you have been placed in Algebra II/Trig, your test will primarily cover concepts from Geometry
 if you have been placed in Precalculus, your test will primarily cover concepts from Algebra II/Trigonometry
 All exams have an enforced time limit of 90 minutes.
 Calculators are not permitted.

Remember!
If you do not do well on this placement exam, it does not mean you are a poor student or do not know the material from the prerequisite class. Our usage of a readiness exam is only to determine whether or not we would recommend placing you in a position where you will need to learn the next class’s material in a short and very intense six week period. ATDP is keenly invested in challenging our students at an appropriate level, not overwhelming them!
We wish all students the best of luck with their readiness exams!
