The Iowa Algebra Aptitude Test (IAAT) is a timed test. The actual testing time is 40 minutes. Additional time is required for completing the identifying information on the answer sheet, hearing directions, etc. So actual time in the testing room is approximately 70 minutes.
The IAAT is a timed test consisting of 60 items divided evenly into four subtests. The time limit of each subtest is 10 minutes.
The four subtests are:
Pre-Algebraic Number Skills and Concepts – The items on this subtest measure a student’s computational skills, understanding of mathematical concepts, and the ability to solve mathematics problems.
Using Symbols – This section measures how well students understand some of the important symbols of algebra.
Representing Relationships – For each of the exercises in this part of the test, the student must find the rule that represents the given numerical relationship. Some of the items present the relationship in table form while others present the relationship in verbal form.
Interpreting Mathematical Information – The items on this part are based upon information presented in graphs or upon definitions of mathematical terms or operations. The items assess how well a student can learn new material presented in graphs or text.
