All parabolas have a standard form equation. This quiz/worksheet combo will help test your understanding of standard form equations for parabolas, including how to identify one. These assessments ask you questions such as how to determine the vertex of a specific equation and how to find the axis of symmetry.

In these assessments you'll be tested on the following:

- How to find the standard form equation when given the vertex and a point
- Identifying the axis of symmetry
- Figuring out the vertex of an equation

This quiz and worksheet allow students to test the following skills:

**Knowledge application**- use your knowledge to answer questions about the appearance of a standard form equation of a parabola**Information recall**- access the knowledge you've gained regarding the difference between the vertex form and the standard form**Reading comprehension**- ensure that you draw the most important information from the lesson about the axis of symmetry

Learn more about parabolas by studying the related lesson called Writing Standard-Form Equations for Parabolas: Definition & Explanation. The lesson covers the following concepts:

- What specific element in a standard equation tells you whether the parabola opens up or down
- The formula for finding the axis of symmetry
- The importance of the phrase 'be positive, don't frown'
- What information the vertex form gives you about the parabola
