This is a two-page test that I use with my grade 7 students about halfway through our solving algebraic equations unit. The test focuses on balancing equations (with and without the use of manipulatives) and problem solving with algebra. It should serve as a good assessment tool in your classroom. I've included a pdf copy of the test (and answer key). Feel free to amend the work in any way. Enjoy!
