Product Description
Overview: The Simple Interest Skills Exam assesses only the skills involved in computing Simple Interest. I call it a ‘skills’ exam because it only targets calculation from an equation.
Students must:

- Produce the Simple Interest Equation: I = Prt
- Identify the variables of the Simple Interest Equation
- Calculate the Simple Interest when given the principle, rate and time.
- Find the Principle amount when given the interest, rate and time.
- Determine the rate when given the principle, time and interest.
- Compute the time when given the principle, rate and interest.

You will receive a copy of the Simple Interest Skills Exam
and the Simple Interest Skills Exam Answer Key. This is not
a multiple choice exam in an effort to keep the rigor high.
However, it is designed to make grading quick and easy.
I allow my students to use calculators to avoid silly errors
but I avoid calculators with a % key so that students must
show that they can convert a percentage to a decimal.
Students will poor equation solving skills can still earn
an 80% on this exam, as long as they know the basic Simple Interest Equation. These students tend to miss only the last three answers, helping the teacher to identify the problem.
