Math 6 Accelerated Testing

  • Due to the closure of our schools, testing has been postponed until further notice. 


    This website will be updated as more information becomes available. 
    Students should keep working in their ALEKS (Math 6 and math 7) accounts and working through the practice test below.

     
    Students have the opportunity to accelerate their math education in grade 6. Students qualify to test based on certain criteria, found in the documents at right. A timeline of events will appear below to keep you informed during every step of the process. Check back often for updates. 
     

    Here are the testing dates provided by each school. 
    If your school does not have a date listed, please contact the school for more info.
