Product Details

Algebra Placement Test

The Orleans-Hanna provides teachers, counselors, students, and parents with objective results to support decisions about students’ readiness for algebra course placement.

Features and Benefits

  • Test results help determine appropriate placement of students in pre-algebra classes and one-year or two-year algebra programs. This version includes information to predict the success that students in Grades 7–11 will have in first-year algebra courses.
  • Mastery of the general middle school mathematics objectives on the Orleans-Hanna demonstrates abilities necessary as prerequisite skills for success in Algebra I.
  • Test results can give students an opportunity to explore mathematics-related occupations as they begin planning their high school curriculum. The Orleans-Hanna is also a valuable component to include in your district’s selection of career exploration tools because it fulfills the School to Work law’s requirement that students must be exposed to career exploration no later than Grade 7.

Content Area

Five lessons introduce information and require students to use their reasoning skills to discover answers to the problems that follow. Problem-solving items help accurately assess students’ ability to handle new situations. These items use charts and graphs similar to those specified in the NCTM Curriculum and Evaluation Standards for School Mathematics. A review test assesses very general middle-school mathematics objectives.

Scoring

Keys & Report Forms

The Scoring Key enables classroom teachers to determine results immediately. Student answer sheets include self-reported report card grades in Mathematics, English, Science, and Social Studies. Extensive research shows that combining raw scores from algebra test problems and grades in these subjects gives significantly more accurate results than using raw scores alone. 
The scoring key weights the information automatically.

The Student Report Form gives teachers a straightforward way to explain test results to students and parents. Tests can also be scored and reported through the Pearson Scoring and Reporting Services.

Ready Results

When you scan and score at your school or district office, use Ready Results—a complete scanning, scoring, and reporting system for viewing and controlling your assessment results online in a secure environment. With Ready Results, you can make informed decisions—quickly!

Also, use Ready Results for in-depth analysis of student and group performance. The software supports the ability to view results for multiple assessments on a single report. Administrators can customize the views and create Quick Reports for all users to view online. Access to the results can be controlled down to the teacher level. Any computer with Internet access can be used, all within a secure environment!

A key feature of Ready Results is the ability to control the student records database. The teacher who was responsible for the students who took the test can view the results by class. To further assist in instructional planning, the system allows a teacher to view how their current students performed last year. And with one click, the principal can view on one report how the students in each class performed, making Ready Results well positioned for the new Teacher Accountability requirements. Controlling results by special demographic characteristics is just as easy and makes Ready Results a great fit for RTI initiatives.

Options for Importing Data

Importing data for use with Ready Results can be accomplished in more than one way, depending on the assessment itself and your choice of methods. Options include:

  • Scan with a local PC
  • Use the Pearson Scoring Center
  • Use Web-Based Reporting
