Algebra I Credit Test
Saturday, April 30, 2022
The Algebra I Credit Test is for students who have taken a full year of a high-school equivalent Algebra One class. The test affords the student the opportunity to earn a Seton math credit for Algebra I and to be placed into Honors Geometry. Please note that taking the exam is not required to be placed into Honors Algebra I. Honors placement was based on HSPT test results and is not related to the Credit Test. The “Sample Problems for Algebra One Credit Test” are similar in content and level of difficulty to the Algebra One Credit Test and can help the student gage their readiness for the test.
Materials to bring on the test day: Pencils, eraser, NO Calculator. The test is 90 minutes long and students will remain in the testing room for 90 minutes even if they finish early.

The Geometry Credit Test is for students who have taken a full year of a high-school equivalent Geometry class, which includes the study of two column proofs and right triangle trigonometry. The test affords the student the opportunity to earn a Seton math credit for Geometry and to be placed into Honors Algebra II (provided that the student has also taken and passed the Algebra I exam). Please note that if a student passes the Geometry exam but not the Algebra I exam, they will be placed in Honors Algebra I freshman year and then take Honors Algebra II sophomore year. “Geometry Credit Test - General List of Topics” will give the student an idea of the topics covered in the Geometry Credit Test.
