2. WHY AM I HERE?
Students who did not score “proficient” or “advanced”
overall on any Keystone Exam are required to receive
supplemental instruction, and must re-take the exam.
The Algebra 1 Keystone Exam is split into two modules
(two days). You are only required to re-take the
module(s) you did not pass.

3. WHAT ARE MODULES?
Algebra 1 content has been split two halves, called
modules, which cover different concepts.

4. WHAT CAN I DO TO IMPROVE?
The packet you have been given has 4 pages of practice
problems for each module.
The packet includes general practice, and sample
items for multiple-choice and constructed response.

5. WHO CAN HELP ME?
If you are currently in a math course, consult with your
classroom teacher and work through problems.
All students are invited to visit “targeted” directed
study periods:
Period 3: Mr. Fromal (B118)
4A: Mrs. Varcoe (B207)
4B: Mrs. Richards (B110)

7. FINAL THOUGHTS
All students have the ability to be proficient!
Focus on what you CAN do and CAN achieve!
Constructed response: this is where many students
lose points. Look at all parts, and think about what
you know.
Self-reflection is a key to success. What is your plan
for proving proficiency?
