A Requisite Test for a First Course in Trigonometry and Analytic Geometry (MAT-111) at the Catholic University of Chile.
Olivares, Maria Angelica; And Others
The development of a diagnostic test at the Catholic University of Chile is described. The 50-item multiple choice test is used as an entrance and prerequisite test for students about to take a first university course in trigonometry and analytic geometry (MAT-111). Thirty items pertain to algebra and 20 to geometry. Each question corresponds to one of 50 objectives considered requisites to the course, with the focus of the test on the disclosure of pupil deficiencies. A list of the 50 objectives; information on the design, format, administration, and improvement of the test; and extensive presentations of individual item data are all included in this document.
