Online Math Assessment
Applicants are required to take a math aptitude test. The test will include 20 multiple-choice and open-response questions intended to assess 9th and 10th grade-level skills in Algebra 1, Algebra 2, and Geometry. Applicants will have 60 minutes to complete the test and must receive a score of 70% or higher to pass.
On-site Sample Tutorial
Applicants who pass the math assessment will be required to deliver a sample tutorial to two students at Lawrence High School. Each applicant will receive a lesson plan a day in advance to prepare for the tutorial. During the tutorial, there will be an observer taking notes. After the tutorial, candidates will sit down with the observer to debrief and receive feedback.
We highly recommend that you come to our location for the sample tutorial; however, if you absolutely can not make it to our site, we can host the tutorial session through Skype (Note: this will affect the quality of the session and our ability to evaluate your performance). Also, you will lose the opportunity to view the school and observe our program in action.
