For more cool math videos visit my site at http://mathgotserved.com or http://youtube.com/mathsgotserved The COMPASS Mathematics Tests are organized around five principal content domains: numerical skills/prealgebra, algebra, college algebra, geometry, and trigonometry. To ensure variety in the content and complexity of items within each domain, COMPASS includes mathematics items of three general levels of cognitive complexity: basic skills, application, and analysis. A basic skills item can be solved by performing a sequence of basic operations. An application item involves applying sequences of basic operations to novel settings or in complex ways. An analysis item requires students to demonstrate a conceptual understanding of the principles and relationships relevant to particular mathematical operations. Items in each of the content domains sample extensively from these three cognitive levels. Students are permitted to use calculators on all current Windows® and Internet versions of COMPASS Mathematics Tests. Calculators must, however, meet ACT's specifications, which are the same for COMPASS and the ACT Assessment. These specifications are updated periodically and can be found at ACT's website at http://www.act.org/aap/taking/calculator.html Algebra Placement Test The Algebra Placement Test is composed of items from three curricular areas: elementary algebra, coordinate geometry, and intermediate algebra. Each of these three areas is further subdivided into a number of more specific content areas. Overall, the Algebra Placement Test includes items from more than 20 content areas; however, the majority of test questions fall within the following eight content areas: 1. Substituting Values into Algebraic Expressions 2. Setting Up Equations for Given Situations 3. Basic Operations with Polynomials 4. Factoring Polynomials 5. Linear Equations in One Variable 6. Exponents and Radicals 7. Rational Expressions 8. Linear Equations in Two Variables
