Math Entry Test

To avoid fakers and scammers on this site, I think an entry math test should be a requirement to join our community of math enthusiasts,  teachers, tutors and students. The test should be multiple-choice, 10 questions with a passing score of 70 percent. For those who fail, the test can be taken at least 3 times per year. The test should also be fair but not too easy. Math questions on the test should range from grade 5 to 8. With the permission of the site creator, I would like the opportunity to create a math entry test for this site. You say?

Re: Math Entry Test

I don't think it is required, in my opinion.

Re: Math Entry Test

You are right. There is no test requirement but I think it is a good idea.

Re: Math Entry Test

I am totally opposed to this.  The forum is open access. Lots of our members join because they are weak at maths and want help to improve.

Copy. Understood. No test will be posted. It was just a suggestion.
