Locator Test
Arithmetic Competency

NOTE:   The scoring for the LOCATOR TEST does NOT work.   After Discovery.com took over the scoring software from the University of Hawaii they lost all the keys in a server crash. Eventually the scoring keys will be reconstructed, but be aware that you will get a server error if you try to check your answers online.

Feel free to write down the questions (with your answers) and use a calculator and/or other resources to check your answers. You can then yuse the other resources linked from this page to help you master the skill areas.
