The Iowa End-of-Course assessments are designed to assess student knowledge and skills in a variety of subject areas. The modules are designed to cover specific subject areas and are intended to allow for a broader coverage of content than the regular IEOC assessments. The modules consist of approximately 16 multiple-choice items and are designed to be administered in less than a single class period. The test items, which are aligned to the Common Core State Standards, reflect educator input and a rigorous quality-control process to ensure appropriateness, content accuracy, and clarity.

A summary of the content covered within the Matrix Algebra module is presented below.

Vector and Matrix Quantities

Topics may include representing and modeling with vector quantities, performing operations on matrices, and using matrices in applications.

Algebra
