# DIAGNOSTIC TESTS

All courses that are listed below have a diagnostic exam. The point of these diagnostic exams is to provide feedback as to what topics the student should refresh on and determine if this course is right for you. You will receive feedback a few days before the course starts.

However, performing poorly on the diagnostic exam will not prevent you from enrolling in the course. Even if we recommend that you shouldn't take the course you signed up for, you may still enroll in that course. ​

Math

AB Calculus - Pre-Calc Diagnostic

BC Calculus - Pre-Calc Honors Diagnostic

Computer Science

AP Computer Science - Coding Fundamentals Diagnostic

Physics​​​​​

AP Physics C: Mechanics - Pre-Calc Diagnostic & Algebra Physics Diagnostic​

Standardized Testing Prep

Each Standardized Testing Prep course will have a diagnostic corresponding to its subject. For example, you would take a SAT Math diagnostic if you wanted to enroll in SAT Math. These diagnostics will be practice SAT sections.

Diagnostic Tests: Who We Are

## DIAGNOSTIC INFO

### PRE-CALCULUS HONORS (TEST FOR BC CALCULUS)

This test measures your aptitude in various pre-calculus concepts that are required for BC Calculus. It will contain 18 multiple choice questions as well as 5 free response questions. Although the test is designed to be taken in 45 minutes, students will have 1 hour to complete the test.

Here are a list of topics that will be tested:

• Ellipses and Hyperbolas

• Arithmetic progressions and geometric progressions

• Polar coordinates

• Absolute value functions and graphs

• Rational roots

• Long division of polynomials

• Domain and Range

• Inverse functions

• Exponential equations

• Compound interest and exponential growth/decay

• Logarithms

• Properties of logarithms

• Trigonometry

• Trig Identities​

• Trig formulas (double angle, half angle etc.)​​
• Trig equations

• Trig graphs

### PRE-CALCULUS (TEST FOR AB CALCULUS / AP PHYSICS C: MECHANICS)

This test measures your aptitude in various pre-calculus concepts that are used in AB Calculus and AP Physics C: Mechanics. Unlike the pre-calculus honors diagnostic test, this test will not test ellipses and hyperbolas, arithmetic and geometric progressions, and polar coordinates. In total, the test will contain 15 multiple choice questions and 5 free response questions, all of which will be designed to completed in 45 minutes. However, students will have 1 hour to complete the test.

Here are a list of topics that will be tested:

• Absolute value functions and graphs

• Rational roots

• Long division of polynomials

• Domain and Range

• Inverse functions

• Exponential equations

• Compound interest and exponential growth/decay

• Logarithms

• Properties of logarithms

• Trigonometry

• Trig Identities​

• Trig formulas (double angle, half angle etc.)​​
• Trig equations

• Trig graphs
