### PERT: Solving Linear & Quadratic Equations Objectives

The PERT test is a Florida high school graduation requirement and is given to 11th-grade students as a way to gauge their college readiness, while helping to determine students' course placement. The computer-adaptive test consists of 3 subtests for reading, math and writing. Each subtest features 30 multiple-choice questions and is scored individually.

Topics in this Solving Linear and Quadratic Equations chapter are found on the math subtest, which requires a minimum cut score of 114. Not earning this minimum score could mean being placed in a remedial class in the 12th grade. To increase your chances of passing this subtest, review the short videos in this chapter. You can test your comprehension of lesson concepts with self-assessment quizzes and a chapter exam. If you have any questions about lesson topics, submit them to experts who are ready to assist.
