This test measures your scientific reasoning 
skills, based on material that is typically covered in first- and second-year high school general science courses, including topics in biology, chemistry, physics, geology, astronomy, and meteorology.The test presents five sets of scientific information: two in the data representation format (graphs, tables, and other schematic forms), two in the research summaries format (descriptions of several related experiments), and one in the conflicting viewpoints format (two or more hypotheses that are inconsistent with one another). The multiple-choice questions that follow each set require you to understand the information provided, to examine critically the relationships between the information and the hypotheses developed, and to generalize from the information in order to draw conclusions or make predictions. The use of calculators is not permitted on the Science Test.
