I used this assessment to determine if my 7th grade duaghter should repeat pre-algebra or move on to algebra for 8th grade. I recommend using this assessment as a tool for determining your child's readiness for algebra instruction.

The "Iowa Algebra Aptitude Test" is a great tool to see if your student is ready to delve into the rigors of higher math. The test is easy to administer.
According to my son, James, "It is one of the easiest tests I've ever taken. The directions made me feel like I could take on the world not just Algebra."
Every home-school parent should have their rising 8th grader take the test to see if he/she is ready for high school math.
