Here are two quick quizzes that we have assembled for you to take with problems taken from a published version of the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test.
One of the seven-question quizzes is for math, the other for reading, and both are at the 10th-grade level. It includes your score as you go and at the end. You are permitted to use a calculator and look up general equations (Pythagorean, volume of a sphere, etc.).
Why did we create these quizzes?
We decided to do this because of the enormous popularity of a guest post I published last week by educator Marion Brady about a school board member in Florida who decided to take the state standardized test.
