Algebra Unit Exam - Section 2: Administering the Exam

In grading my students exams, I found several common mistakes:

#3 - Students multiplied the exponent by the base, rather than apply the exponent.

#5 - Students didn't reverse the order when translating "less than"

#7 - Students distribute to both terms within the parentheses.

#8 - Students only added the two given sides.

#10 - Students are confused by key words "at least" and "no more than".

#11 - Since the variable is on the left side of the equation, students were unsure if it was the same operation.

#15 - Students were able to narrow the correct answer to A or B, but were unsure if the amount could be exactly $15.

#### Administering the Exam

*60 min*

This Algebra Unit Test consists of only short answer questions and therefore it will take students a considerable amount of time to complete. The questions require time for students to understand them, determine what they are required to find, and to complete. I will give students 1 hour to complete the exam.
