Algebra 2 Test-Out Procedures

Students who have NEVER BEEN ENROLLED in Algebra 2 will be eligible to take the exam. Students interested in taking the Algebra 2 Test-Out need to be in at least the eighth grade. Register online using the link below.  Students will be required to bring their student ID with them to the exam. Students who pass this exam will be awarded credit on their high school transcript. The results of the test-out will not affect their grade point average.

Spring Administration

            Test Date: Saturday, May 4, 2019

            Time:   9 a.m. – 12 p.m.

            Location:  Stevenson High School, 33500 W Six Mile Rd. 



The test-out has been moved to a Saturday later in the year in order to give students the opportunity to cover more information in their current math classes. If you would prefer your student to take the test on a half day of school, as has happened in the past, please contact Ben Hillard to set up alternate arrangements at

Test Components

The Algebra 2 test-out consists of 80 multiple choice questions testing the following High School Content Clusters:

1.    Perform arithmetic operations with complex numbers.

2.   Use complex numbers in polynomial identities and equations.

3.   Interpret the structure of expressions.

4.   Write expressions in equivalent forms to solve problems.

5.   Perform arithmetic operations on polynomials.

6.    Understand the relationship between zeros and factors of polynomials.

7.   Use polynomial identities to solve problems. 

8.   Rewrite rational expressions

9.   Understand solving equations as a process of reasoning and explain the reasoning.

10.  Represent and solve equations and inequalities graphically.

11.  Analyze functions using different representations.

12.  Create equations that describe numbers or relationships.

13.  Understand the concept of a function and use function notation.

14.  Interpret functions that arise in applications in terms of a context.

15.  Analyze functions using different representations.

16.  Build a function that models a relationship between two quantities.

17.  Build new functions from existing functions.

18.  Construct and compare linear, quadratic, and exponential models and solve problems.

19.  Summarize,represent, and interpret data on a single count or measurement variable.

20.  Understand and evaluate random processes underlying statistical experiments.

21.  Make inferences and justify conclusions from sample surveys, experiments, and observational studies.

22.  Use probability to evaluate outcomes of decisions.

23.  Translate between the geometric description and the equation for a conic section

24.  Understand independence and conditional probability and use them to interpret data.

25.  Use the rules of probability to compute probabilities of compound events in a uniform probability model.

26.  Use probability to evaluate outcomes of decisions.

Test Results

Students must score 80% or better in order to receive credit.

A letter will be sent to the parent/guardian indicating whether or not their student passed the test-out. Counselors will be informed via email from Ben Hillard.
