California CAHSEE Practice



The CAHSEE exam is used to determine student achievement in English-language arts and mathematics. The California public school students must satisfy the California High School Exit Examination requirements, as well as other state and local requirements, in order to receive a high school diploma.

The mathematics section of CAHSEE consists of about 90 multiple choice questions and covers the following areas:
-Number Sense
-Statistics, Data Analysis and Probability
-Algebra and Functions
-Measurement and Geometry
-Mathematical Reasoning
-Algebra I
