ASSET Geometry Test: Area, Circumference & Perimeter Objectives

The primary purpose of the ASSET exam is to serve as a diagnostic tool. It helps to form an accurate assessment of a prospective college student's areas of strength and weakness to assist the student in choosing an appropriate academic program. Depending upon the requirements set by the school, students may be required to take it either before or immediately after enrollment. The test measures basic abilities such as reading, writing and numerical skills, and advanced mathematics knowledge in areas that include algebra and geometry. This chapter aligns with the ASSET Geometry test.

The ASSET exam is paper-based. All of the 192 questions are multiple-choice, and there are 25 that deal specifically with geometry. Since the objective of the exam is assessment, it is not a pass-fail test.
