Realizing that student abilities in mathematics vary significantly within any grade level, Holy Cross offers advanced math placement for those students who qualify.
Placement is based on a composite of each student’s achievement, Iowa Basic Skills Test score, his or her previous classroom success, input of the previous year’s teacher, and, if necessary, their performance on the Saxon math placement test.
Consideration is given to the difficulty of the higher-level course in determining honor roll in the hope that students who qualify will choose to take the next level without jeopardizing their ability to be on the honor roll.
