Frequently asked questions

What subject matter does Checkpoint cover?

Checkpoint covers the following domains: Algebra & Functions, Probability & Statistics, Graphics Interpretation. 

Algebra & Functions
Includes: Operations with exponents; factoring and simplifying algebraic expressions; relations, functions, equations and inequalities; solving linear and quadratic equations and inequalities; solving simultaneous equations and inequalities; setting up equations to solve word problems; and coordinate geometry. It also addresses applying algebraic reasoning and techniques in various contexts; translating information into equations and/or graphs; and using functions to express quantitative relationships to solve problems in a real-life context.In addition to these domains, Checkpoint also looks at an applicant’s ability to apply these principles in a ‘theoretical’ vs. an ‘applied’ situation.

Probability and Statistics 
Includes: Basic probability, such as probabilities of compound events and independent events; conditional probability; random variables and probability distributions, normal distributions; and counting methods, such as combinations and permutations. Topics in statistics include descriptive statistics, such as mean, median, mode, range, standard deviation, interquartile range, quartiles and percentiles. It also addresses using methods and techniques of probability; translating information into mathematical forms, equations, graphs, or charts, so that probabilistic functions and/or statistical analysis can solve problems in a real-life context.

Graphics Interpretation 
Includes: Interpretation of data in tables and graphs, such as line graphs, bar graphs, circle graphs, boxplots, scatterplots, stem-and-leaf plots, and frequency distributions. It also addresses applying techniques of set theory, Venn diagrams, permutations, combinations, probability, statistics, and algebra to solve application problems that use data in charts, graphs, tables, or other data presentations

Application 
Along with the above three domains, Checkpoint also diagnoses your ability to solve the questions in a realistic situation. Application includes: The application of understanding is important in most fields, including business. This is why each domain covered by Checkpoint not only addresses your understanding of that domain, but also your ability to apply that understanding to represent and solve problems.

What types of scores are included in Checkpoint?

Checkpoint results include a total score, scores for each quantitative reasoning domain, as well as an application score.
