### NES Middle Grades Math: Probability Objectives

The content of these lessons relate primarily to the Statistics, Probability, and Discrete Mathematics content domain of the NES Middle Grades Mathematics test. This domain includes about 25% of the test questions, which have as one of their guides objective 0011: principles of probability. The test includes 150 multiple-choice questions overall, and you are given a time limit of 4 hours, 15 minutes.

You will receive your scaled score at the end of the exam; you need to achieve a 220 or higher on the 100-300 scale to pass. Your detailed score report -- which shows how you performed in each content domain and is delivered to you and the education institution of your choice -- takes a couple of weeks to be published. You will download your score report on the NES website, which is where you'll also go to register for the test if you have not already.
