An 85 question exam made up of topics that research has shown to be related to Algebra success was given to 244 9th grade students from a large suburban high school. Exploratory Factor Analysis was used to reduce the original assessment to a 15 question exam that is used to predict if a student would succeed in Algebra. This study uses a student's gender, previous and predicted math grades, reading score, self-confidence and a score on the newly created computation quiz to determine what factors are predictive of Algebra success.An 85 question exam made up of topics that research has shown to be related to Algebra success was given to 244 9th grade students from a large suburban high school.
