About The Exam
The NES Mathematics test is a computerbased test consisting of 150 multiplechoice questions. The test is four hours and fifteen minutes long and can be taken at multiple testing sites around Oregon. During the exam you'll be supplied with an onscreen calculator and a set of formulas.
NES Mathematics Preparation and Registration
The NES assessments are used by teaching candidates throughout Oregon to prove their credentials in different subjects. The NES mathematics exam will test your knowledge of basic mathematics principles and topics. The video lessons in our comprehensive study guide will teach you all you need to know to pass the exam with flying colors so you can successfully teach those same topics in the classroom. These lessons will teach you, among other things, all the basics of algebra and geometry, how to utilize complex formulas and functions, and the ins and outs of statistics and probability. Let our instructors help you achieve a better understanding of trigonometry, logic, and different types of expressions.
The computerbased test is available yearround, by appointment, at locations all across Oregon. Seating is firstcome, firstserved. If you wish to change the location, date, or time of the test you originally registered for, you must submit the change 24 hours before your originally scheduled exam. There is no fee for changing your exam location, date, or time.
NES Mathematics Scoring
Your testing results will be available immediately following the exam, but your scoring report will not be mailed to you for two weeks. You must score at least a 225 on the test to pass.
Mathematical Processes and Number Sense
In this area, you'll be tested on your ability to solve hypothetical and reallife math problems involving different types of numbers, ratios, and rates of change. Use logic and reasoning to analyze the connections between different mathematical concepts. This section also includes questions on number theory, including those involving complex numbers. These questions account for approximately 19% of the test.
Patterns, Algebra, and Functions
Here, you will be tested on your knowledge of functions, including linear, quadratic, higherorder polynomial, exponential, logarithmic, rational, radical, absolute value, and piecewise defined functions. Learn how to manipulate and analyze these functions, and use them to solve mathematical equations. This section accounts for 24% of the questions on the test.
Measurement and Geometry
You will be tested on your ability to understand measurement principles and procedures, including conversion methods. Then, you will use your measurement skills to demonstrate your handling of Euclidean two and threedimensional geometry. This section also includes questions on coordinate and transformational geometry. You will need to be able to analyze figures in a coordinate system and chart the effects of transformations on a graph. The section accounts for 19% of the test.
Trigonometry and Calculus
This is where your knowledge of basic trigonometry and calculus principles will come in handy. You will need to use trigonometric functions to solve theoretical and reallife equations. Many of the questions in this section deal with differential and integral calculus, so make sure you have a firm grasp on the derivatives and integrals of functions. Study up on the Riemann sum, difference quotients, and rates of change and optimization. The questions in this section account for 19% of the test.
Statistics, Probability and Discrete Mathematics
Your understanding of basic statistical principles such as central tendencies, variability, and the effects of biases and sampling techniques will be put to the test here. In addition, you will need to prove your ability to determine probability using a number of techniques, such as graphing. Then, utilize the principles of discrete mathematics to solve problems, perform operations on matrices and vectors, and understand set theory. This section accounts for 19% of the questions on the test.
