### TACHS: Geometric Measurement Objectives

The TACHS test is required of 8th grade students interested in attending Catholic high schools in the Diocese of Brooklyn/Queens or the Archdiocese of New York. Students who seek admission to a school for a given school year must take the test during the previous November.

The multiple-choice test consists of four primary sections that test students' comprehension of reading, math, language and ability. Topics in this chapter are reflective of the math section of the test. You can use the self-assessment quiz with each lesson to access questions similar in format and content to those on the test. A chapter exam is also available to gauge your comprehension of all of the lessons.
