Pilot research using a draft version of the Mathematics Inventory is discussed in this report. The Mathematics Inventory is a self evaluation instrument which covers five major subject areas: elementary algebra, intermediate/advanced algebra, plane and solid geometry, trigonometry, and coordinate geometry and functions. The instrument is considered experimental and must be subjected to proper validation. The report concludes with several appendices. Included are the Mathematics Inventory, with instructions and answer sheet; a prototype report to the student based on his or her responses to the inventory; and a prototype report to the secondary school.
