The Mathematics Achievement section is the fourth and final scored portion of the ISEE Lower Level. Students are presented with 30 questions and given 30 minutes to complete them or about exactly 1 minute per question.
Much of this section is composed of word problems similar to the Quantitative Reasoning Test. However, these word problems tend to be a little more straight forward. But in exchange for their simpler presentation, they may require students to do time-consuming mathematical computations.
Additionally, a handful of questions will be simple computations in which questions are presented with standard math notation accompanied by little to no wording.
Like the quantitative reasoning section, tested math concepts include basic number operations, algebra, and introductory geometry, which most 4th graders should have seen by the end of their first semester.
Each question is followed by four suggested answers. Read each question and then decide which one of the four suggested answers is best.
