The Regents Examination in Algebra I (Common Core) contains multiple-choice and constructed-response questions. For multiple-choice questions, students select the correct response from four answer choices. For constructed-response questions, students are required to clearly indicate the necessary steps, including appropriate formula substitutions, diagrams, graphs, charts, etc. In some cases, they may be required to explain, in words, how they arrived at their answers.
Multiple-choice questions measure the Standards for Mathematical Content and may incorporate Standards for Mathematical Practices and real-world applications. Some multiple-choice questions require students to complete multiple steps. Likewise, questions may measure more than one standard, drawing on the simultaneous application of multiple skills and concepts.
