INFO REGARDING MATH 7 ACC PLACEMENT TEST FOR INCOMING GRADE 6 STUDENTS (updated 4/4/14)
This year’s Math 7 Accelerated Placement Test will be administered in all Grade 5 classrooms on Thursday, May 8. The Math 7 Accelerated Placement Test will consist of forty multiple choice questions and three “Explain Your Reasoning” questions. All test questions will be directly aligned to one or more of the Grade 6 Common Core math standards, along with a small number of questions addressing addition and subtraction of fractions. Students will have 45 minutes to answer the forty multiple choice questions, then 15 minutes to answer the three “Explain Your Reasoning” questions. A predetermined scoring rubric will be used to determine a passing score, with all student’s “Explain Your Reasoning” questions scored by a committee of middle school math teachers. Parents will be informed of their child's placement during middle school registration.
All Grade 5 students who do not pass the Math 7 Accelerated Placement Test on May 8 will be placed in Math 6 to start the 201415 school year, however, during middle school during registration, a child’s parent may sign up their child up to be given a retake opportunity. All retake tests will be administered at each CUSD middle school during one predetermined date during the first week of the school. Students who pass the retake opportunity will be transferred to Math 7 Accelerated as soon as possible.
Last year's Math 7 Accelerated Placement Test is available for download by clicking:

This year's Math 7 Accelerated Placement Test, although similar in format to last year's version, will have completely different questions aligned to the Common Core Grade 6 Math Standards, along with a few questions addressing addition and subtraction of fractions, which are taught in Grade 5.
