# Pretest

This pretest will help you and your mentor determine what knowledge and skills of algebra 1 that you have. The pretest should be challenging, as Duke TIP courses are developed for gifted students who are interested in accelerating and enriching their learning.

This assessment should be a snapshot of your current knowledge prior to taking the course.

- Complete each quiz question carefully.
- Do not use any outside sources while taking this assessment. For example, do not look for answers on the Internet or in other electronic sources, read print sources, or ask others for help.

*You can check your answers and view your score as you work; you can also print your results using the Print Score Summary form at the bottom of the page.*

Let's get started and find out what you know about algebra 1. A score below 80 percent indicates that you would benefit from taking this course.
