**Directions:**

Choose an assessment (version 1, 2, or 3) to give your student. Print the assessment and give it to your student. (Allow your student to have scratch paper). (NOTE: This is not a timed test but you may want to document when your student started and completed the assessment for data purposes.)

Watch your student complete the first 4 questions. If your student struggles on the first 4 questions, stop the assessment. Then allow your student to read through the remainder of the questions on the assessment. Tell your student to try their best and only attempt questions they are familiar with. (We do not want a student to hit their frustration point. Allowing them to try only the familiar questions, can help to keep them motivated).

If students can successfully complete at least 80% of the assessment, the teacher can assume that the student is proficient in Algebra-1 and can retain the information. If students get several questions incorrect, the teacher can use that data to determine the areas of strength and areas of concern.

Use the data sheets provided as documentation for IEPs, progress

monitoring, baseline data, etc.
