Algebra test and answers – will be here later today

June 18, 2010 pm30 2:30 pm
Update Saturday morning
 - it is taking longer than I anticipated.
 Some answers are already up. (main page)
 The rest will dribble in over the course of today.
In the comments section Jennifer has a link to a list of answers. --- jd

The June 2010 Integrated Algebra Regents started today at 1:15.

The exam and the answers will be posted here sometime after 8PM around midnight. You might want to check in the morning.

(Teachers get stressed differently than kids do, but we still get stressed. I just came in after an almost 4 hour walk. Rough week. I’ll get over it, but posting the algebra got delayed.)

    Is anything geometry related coming soon?

    I’ve been grading Geometry tests all day. Anything you’d like to know?

    Yeah, I’m pretty sure I got everything right except for one. I was unsure about the perpendicular bisector construction multiple choice.

      Oops. Sorry. I was mostly grading the open-ended. I really didn’t see the multiple choice, except the answer key.

    I found the regents to be a bit more difficult than anticipated. 1/2 of the questions were repeats, while the other half were complete curve balls. I froze up on a question about Cartesian Coordinate System quadrants. However, I think I got in the upper 90s. (8th grade honors Integrated Algebra)

    P.S. Here is a link to the conversion chart via jmap.org. Some of you may be disappointed in the fact that they skipped 99. 1 multiple choice wrong = 97. :(

    Around what time will the answers be posted? My Sabbath commences at 8:10 P.M., thus I would really appreciate if they were released prior to then. Regardless, thank you.

    What is the minimum for a regents with distinction???

  9. Anonymous permalink
    June 18, 2010 pm30 8:07 pm 8:07 pm

    The minimum for distinction on a regents is 85. For this specific exam, a raw score of 78/87 was required. Good luck! :)

    I bet you’ll do great. I don’t mind if i do well or not, as long as my score is counted as a regents with Distinction. (well for me is over a 95) I have really high standards and Really bad nerves!!!

    I got the quadrants wrong and one part of the histogram wrong. I’m pretty sure I aced the rest, though. That underlying doubt just drives me nuts! Especially since they curved down for the low to mid 80s. :/

    We’ll get our scores when our teachers decide. My algebra teacher is spending all day Monday marking. She said we’ll get them back either Monday 8th period or Tuesday. You may get it back sooner or later.

    Check here and on jmap.org for answer keys, tests, and conversion charts. I will link you if you want. :)

    • person permalink
      June 19, 2010 am30 12:05 am 12:05 am

      you might get a point or two for lower 90s, and you cant get a 99 this year they curve down.

    This regents was curved down. :(

    1x – 98
    2x – 97
    3x – 96
    4x – 95
    And that’s what I remember off the bat.

    I technically should’ve gotten a 97, but I got 1 M.C. wrong (2 pts) and 1 pt off a 4 pt question (1 pt). STUPID MISTAKES! :(

    • person permalink
      June 19, 2010 am30 12:04 am 12:04 am

      It basically gives free points to people who get bad grades so that they can pass. If you got above a 90 it might give you a point or two but if you get a 35 it boosts you to a 65. Very unfair considering they curved down this year in the high 90s.

    • person permalink
      June 19, 2010 am30 12:02 am 12:02 am

      it was worth 4 and i think you might get 2\4 or 3\4 if you did everything else right

        like you showed work and got the answer wrong, or you made a chart and you didnt write the answer

        • Anonymous permalink
          June 19, 2010 am30 12:11 am 12:11 am

          yeah, i think if you still showed work but got a wrong answer you can receive half a point, if it were on a 1 pt. question. like the last section in part 4, there was 4 1 pt. questions. im not sure about the chart tho, you shud def get some credit tho if you drew one

    June 18, 2010 pm30 11:55 pm 11:55 pm

    I think that test was way easier than all of the previous regents. The only curveball for me was number 30, the one about intrest. I got 1 but everyone in my class said they put 4.
