This is a complete Quadratic Equations Test with 31 questions. It is designed for an honors level student, but some of the more difficult questions can be eliminated to make it appropriate for a "regular" non-honors student.
Test has been calibrated for 144 points, but can easily be made for a 100 point format.
Test is 5 pages with an additional 5 page answer key with problems worked out.
On the test:
Short Answer on conjuages, completing the square, the discriminant, roots, vertices of a parabola, axis of symmetry, equations in standard form, x intercept form and vertex (h, k) form.
6 factoring problems.
1 use the Quadratic Formula problem to find the roots and two additional discriminant problems.
2 complete the square problems plus an additional problem where students complete the square to derive the quadratic formula.
5 simplify problems involving imaginary numbers.
1 word problem asking students to double the area of a rectangular volleyball court and find the new court's dimensions.
1 lengthy "graphing" problem where students do not graph but are asked to find a parabola's x intercepts, y intercept, equation of the axis of symmetry, the vertex, the graph's minimum value, the equation in vertex form, the domain and range.
This is a fabulous test and will take most students 80-90 minutes and so is marvelous for a block schedule class. It is also quite easy for you to pare down problems that may not exactly fit the material you covered and now you have a perfect 100 point test with say 20-25 problems and will take one regular length period. Excess problems can be used for classroom quizzes or future review problems.
I used this test last week and it was well received and easy enought to grade.
