# Practice and Prepare for Math Tests ...and Other Assessments

## Locator TestArithmetic 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.

Take the Locator Test, then --after you receive your results-- use this guide to locate the specific skills you need to review by checking the topics you missed on the test:
