ATI TEAS Practice Test #1 The next four questions are based on the following passage. The Bermuda Triangle The area known as the Bermuda Triangle has become such a part of popular culture that it can be difficult to separate fact from fiction. The interest first began when five Navy planes vanished in 1945, officially resulting from “causes or reasons unknown.” The explanations about other accidents in the Triangle range from the scientific to the supernatural. Researchers have never been able to find anything truly mysterious about what happens in the Bermuda Triangle, if there even is a Bermuda Triangle. What is more, one of the biggest challenges in considering the phenomenon is deciding how much area actually represents the Bermuda Triangle. Most consider the Triangle to stretch from Miami out to Puerto Rico and to include the island of Bermuda. Others expand the area to include all of the Caribbean islands and to extend eastward as far as the Azores, which are closer to Europe than they are to North America. The problem with having a larger Bermuda Triangle is that it increases the odds of accidents. There is near-constant travel, by ship and by plane, across the Atlantic, and accidents are expected to occur. In fact, the Bermuda Triangle happens to fall within one of the busiest navigational regions in the world, and the reality of greater activity creates the possibility for more to go wrong. Shipping records suggest that there is not a greater than average loss of vessels within the Bermuda Triangle, and many researchers have argued that the reputation of the Triangle makes any accident seem out of the ordinary. In fact, most accidents fall within the expected margin of error. The increase in ships from East Asia no doubt contributes to an increase in accidents. And as for the story of the Navy planes that disappeared within the Triangle, many researchers now conclude that it was the result of mistakes on the part of the pilots who were flying into storm clouds and simply got lost. 12. Which of the following describes this type of writing? a. Narrative b. Persuasive c. Expository d. Technical 13. Which of the following sentences is most representative of a summary sentence for this passage? a. The problem with having a larger Bermuda Triangle is that it increases the odds of accidents. b. The area that is called the Bermuda Triangle happens to fall within one of the busiest navigational regions in the world, and the reality of greater activity creates the possibility for more to go wrong. c. One of the biggest challenges in considering the phenomenon is deciding how much area actually represents the Bermuda Triangle. d. Researchers have never been able to find anything truly mysterious about what happens in the Bermuda Triangle, if there even is a Bermuda Triangle. ATI TEAS Practice Test #1 14. With which of the following statements would the author most likely agree? a. There is no real mystery about the Bermuda Triangle because most events have reasonable explanations. b. Researchers are wrong to expand the focus of the Triangle to the Azores, because this increases the likelihood of accidents. c. The official statement of “causes or reasons unknown” in the loss of the Navy planes was a deliberate concealment from the Navy. d. Reducing the legends about the mysteries of the Bermuda Triangle will help to reduce the number of reported accidents or shipping losses in that region. 15. Which of the following represents an opinion statement on the part of the author? a. The problem with having a larger Bermuda Triangle is that it increases the odds of accidents. b. The area known as the Bermuda Triangle has become such a part of popular culture that it can be difficult to sort through the myth and locate the truth. c. The increase in ships from East Asia no doubt contributes to an increase in accidents. d. Most consider the Triangle to stretch from Miami to Puerto Rico and include the island of Bermuda. 16. Which of the following is a primary source? a. A report of an original research experiment b. An academic textbook’s citation of research c. A quotation of a researcher in a news article d.

As little as three years before her birth, few would have thought that the child born Princess Alexandrina Victoria would eventually become Britain’s longest reigning monarch, Queen Victoria. She was born in 1819, the only child of Edward, Duke of Kent, who was the fourth son of King George III. Ahead of Edward were three brothers, two of whom became king but none of whom produced a legitimate, surviving heir. King George’s eldest son, who was eventually crowned King George IV, secretly married a Catholic commoner, Maria Fitzherbert, in 1783. The marriage was never officially recognized, and in 1795, George was persuaded to marry a distant cousin, Caroline of Brunswick. The marriage was bitter, and the two had only one daughter, Princess Charlotte Augusta. She was popular in England where her eventual reign was welcomed, but in a tragic event that shocked the nation, the princess and her stillborn son died in childbirth in 1817. Realizing the precarious position of the British throne, the remaining sons of King George III were motivated to marry and produce an heir. The first in line was Prince Frederick, the Duke of York. Frederick married Princess Frederica Charlotte of Prussia, but the two had no children. After Prince Frederick was Prince William, the Duke of Clarence. William married Princess Adelaide of Saxe-Meiningen, and they had two sickly daughters, neither of whom survived infancy. Finally, Prince Edward, the Duke of Kent, threw his hat into the ring with his marriage to Princess Victoria of Saxe-Coburg-Saalfeld. The Duke of Kent died less than a year after his daughter’s birth, but the surviving Duchess of Kent was not unaware of the future possibilities for her daughter. She took every precaution to ensure that the young Princess Victoria was healthy and safe throughout her childhood. Princess Victoria’s uncle, William, succeeded his brother George IV to become King William IV. The new king recognized his niece as his future heir, but he did not necessarily trust her mother. As a result, he was determined to survive until Victoria’s eighteenth birthday to ensure that she could rule in her own right without the regency of the Duchess of Kent. The king’s fervent prayers were answered: he died June 20, 1837, less than one month after Victoria turned eighteen. Though young and inexperienced, the young queen recognized the importance of her position and determined to rule fairly and wisely. The improbable princess who became queen ruled for more than sixty-three years, and her reign is considered to be one of the most important in British history. ATI TEAS Practice Test #1 34. Which of the following is a logical conclusion that can be drawn from the information in the passage above? a. Victoria’s long reign provided the opportunity for her to bring balance to England and right the wrongs that had occurred during the reigns of her uncles. b. It was the death of Princess Charlotte Augusta that motivated the remaining princes to marry and start families. c. The Duke of Kent had hoped for a son but was delighted with his good fortune in producing the surviving heir that his brothers had failed to produce. d. King William IV was unreasonably suspicious of the Duchess of Kent’s motivations, as she cared only for her daughter’s well-being. 35. What is the author’s likely purpose in writing this passage about Queen Victoria? a. To persuade the reader to appreciate the accomplishments of Queen Victoria, especially when placed against the failures of her forebears. b. To introduce the historical impact of the Victorian Era by introducing to readers the queen who gave that era its name. c. To explain how small events in history placed an unlikely princess in line to become the queen of England. d. To indicate the role that King George III’s many sons played in changing the history of England. 36. Based on the context of the passage, the reader can infer that this information is likely to appear in which of the following types of works? a. A scholarly paper b. A mystery c. A fictional story d. A biography The next five questions are based on the following passage. In 1603, Queen Elizabeth I of England died. She had never married and had no heir, so the throne passed to a distant relative: James Stuart, the son of Elizabeth’s cousin and one- time rival for the throne, Mary, Queen of Scots. James was crowned King James I of England. At the time, he was also King James VI of Scotland, and the combination of roles would create a spirit of conflict that haunted the two nations for generations to come. The conflict developed as a result of rising tensions among the people within the nations, as well as between them. Scholars in the 21st century are far too hasty in dismissing the role of religion in political disputes, but religion undoubtedly played a role in the problems that faced England and Scotland. By the time of James Stuart’s succession to the English throne, the English people had firmly embraced the teachings of Protestant theology. Similarly, the Scottish Lowlands was decisively Protestant. In the Scottish Highlands, however, the clans retained their Catholic faith. James acknowledged the Church of England and still sanctioned the largely Protestant translation of the Bible that still bears his name. James’s son King Charles I proved himself to be less committed to the Protestant Church of England. Charles married the Catholic Princess Henrietta Maria of France, and there were suspicions among the English and the Lowland Scots that Charles was quietly a Catholic. Charles’s own political troubles extended beyond religion in this case, and he was beheaded ATI TEAS Practice Test #1 in 1649. Eventually, his son King Charles II would be crowned, and this Charles is believed to have converted secretly to the Catholic Church. Charles II died without a legitimate heir, and his brother James ascended to the throne as King James II. James was recognized to be a practicing Catholic, and his commitment to Catholicism would prove to be his downfall. James’s wife Mary Beatrice lost a number of children during their infancy, and when she became pregnant again in 1687 the public became concerned. If James had a son, that son would undoubtedly be raised a Catholic, and the English people would not stand for this. Mary gave birth to a son, but the story quickly circulated that the royal child had died and the child named James’s heir was a foundling smuggled in. James, his wife, and his infant son were forced to flee; and James’s Protestant daughter Mary was crowned the queen. In spite of a strong resemblance to the king, the young James was generally rejected among the English and the Lowland Scots, who referred to him as “the Pretender.” But in the Highlands the Catholic princeling was welcomed. He inspired a group known as Jacobites, to reflect the Latin version of his name. His own son Charles, known affectionately as Bonnie Prince Charlie, would eventually raise an army and attempt to recapture what he believed to be his throne. The movement was soundly defeated at the Battle of Culloden in 1746, and England and Scotland have remained ostensibly Protestant ever since. 37. Which of the following sentences contains an opinion on the part of the author? a. James was recognized to be a practicing Catholic, and his commitment to Catholicism would prove to be his downfall. b. James’ son King Charles I proved himself to be less committed to the Protestant Church of England. c. The movement was soundly defeated at the Battle of Culloden in 1746, and England and Scotland have remained ostensibly Protestant ever since. d. Scholars in the 21st century are far too hasty in dismissing the role of religion in political disputes, but religion undoubtedly played a role in the problems that faced England and Scotland. 38. Which of the following is a logical conclusion based on the information that is provided within the passage? a. Like Elizabeth I, Charles II never married and thus never had children. b. The English people were relieved each time that James II’s wife Mary lost another child, as this prevented the chance of a Catholic monarch. c. Charles I’s beheading had less to do with religion than with other political problems that England was facing. d. Unlike his son and grandsons, King James I had no Catholic leanings and was afaithful follower of the Protestant Church of England. ATI TEAS Practice Test #1 39. Based on the information that is provided within the passage, which of the following can be inferred about King James II’s son? a. Considering his resemblance to King James II, the young James was very likely the legitimate child of the king and the queen. b. Given the queen’s previous inability to produce a healthy child, the English and the Lowland Scots were right in suspecting the legitimacy of the prince. c. James “the Pretender” was not as popular among the Highland clans as his son Bonnie Prince Charlie. d. James was unable to acquire the resources needed to build the army and plan the invasion that his son succeeded in doing. 40. Which of the following best describes the organization of the information in the passage? a. Cause-effect b. Chronological sequence c. Problem-solution d. Comparison-contrast 41. Which of the following best describes the author’s intent in the passage? a. To persuade b. To entertain c. To express feeling d. To inform The next two questions are based on the following statements. Lisa Grant: “Schools should make students wear uniforms. Everyone would look the same. Students would be able to respect each other based on their ideas and character because they would no longer be judged by their appearance.” Vivian Harris: “Students should not have to wear uniforms. Clothing is an important part of self-expression. Taking away that method of expression is suppressing that student’s rights.” 42. What is one idea that the students above seem to agree on, based on their statements? a. Students should be allowed to express themselves through apparel. b. Schools should give students a certain amount of respect. c. Students should focus more on school than on appearance. d. Schools would violate students’ basic rights by enforcing a dress code. 43.

School administrators have been in talks with parents over the issue of uniforms. c. Students have reported that school uniforms are costly and typically ill-fitting. d. Several groups of students have been organized to discuss uniform dress codes. ATI TEAS Practice Test #1 The next three questions are based on the following passage. NOTE: The instructor of a history class has just finished grading the essay exams from his students, and the results are not good. The essay exam was worth 70% of the final course score. The highest score in the class was a low B, and more than half of the class of 65 students failed the exam. In view of this, the instructor reconsiders his grading plan for the semester and sends out an email message to all students. Dear Students: The scores for the essay exam have been posted in the online course grade book. By now, many of you have probably seen your grade and are a little concerned. (And if you’re not concerned, you should be—at least a bit!) At the beginning of the semester, I informed the class that I have a strict grading policy and that all scores will stand unquestioned. With each class comes a new challenge, however, and as any good instructor will tell you, sometimes the original plan has to change. As a result, I propose the following options for students to make up their score: 1. I will present the class with an extra credit project at the next course meeting. The extra credit project will be worth 150% of the point value of the essay exam that has just been completed. While I will not drop the essay exam score, I will give you more than enough of a chance to make up the difference and raise your overall score. 2. I will allow each student to develop his or her own extra credit project. This project may reflect the tenor of option number 1 (above) but will allow the student to create a project more in his or her own line of interest. Bear in mind, however, that this is more of a risk. The scoring for option number 2 will be more subjective, depending on whether or not I feel that the project is a successful alternative to the essay exam. If it is, the student will be awarded up to 150% of the point value of the essay exam. 3. I will provide the class with the option of developing a group project. Students may form groups of 3 to 4 and put together an extra credit project that reflects a stronger response to the questions in the essay exam. This extra credit project will also be worth 150% of the point value of the essay exam. Note that each student will receive an equal score for the project, so there is a risk in this as well. If you are part of a group in which you do most of the work, each member of the group will receive equal credit for it. The purpose of the group project is to allow students to work together and arrive at a stronger response than if each worked individually. If you are interested in pursuing extra credit to make up for the essay exam, please choose one of the options above. No other extra credit opportunities will be provided for the course. Good luck! Dr. Edwards 44. Which of the following describes this type of writing? a. Technical b. Narrative c. Persuasive d. Expository ATI TEAS Practice Test #1 45. Which of the following best describes the instructor’s purpose in writing this email to his students? a. To berate students for the poor scores that they made on the recent essay exam. b. To encourage students to continue working hard in spite of failure. c. To give students the opportunity to make up the bad score and avoid failing the course. d. To admit that the essay exam was likely too difficult for most students. 46. Which of the following offers the best summary for the instructor’s motive in sending the email to the students? a. By now, many of you have probably seen your grade and are a little concerned. (And if you’re not concerned, you should be—at least a bit!) b. With each class comes a new challenge, however, and as any good instructor will tell you, sometimes the original plan has to change. c. The purpose of the group project is to allow students to work together and arrive at a stronger response than if each worked individually. d. At the beginning of the semester, I informed the class that I have a strict grading policy and that all scores will stand unquestioned. The next seven questions are based on this passage. In the United States, where we have more land than people, it is not at all difficult for persons in good health to make money. In this comparatively new field there are so many avenues of success open, so many vocations which are not crowded, that any person of either sex who is willing, at least for the time being, to engage in any respectable occupation that offers, may find lucrative employment. Those who really desire to attain an independence, have only to set their minds upon it, and adopt the proper means, as they do in regard to any other object which they wish to accomplish, and the thing is easily done. But however easy it may be found to make money, I have no doubt many of my hearers will agree it is the most difficult thing in the world to keep it. The road to wealth is, as Dr. Franklin truly says, "as plain as the road to the mill." It consists simply in expending less than we earn; that seems to be a very simple problem. Mr. Micawber, one of those happy creations of the genial Dickens, puts the case in a strong light when he says that to have annual income of twenty pounds per annum, and spend twenty pounds and sixpence, is to be the most miserable of men; whereas, to have an income of only twenty pounds, and spend but nineteen pounds and sixpence is to be the happiest of mortals. Many of my readers may say, "we understand this: this is economy, and we know economy is wealth; we know we can't eat our cake and keep it also." Yet I beg to say that perhaps more cases of failure arise from mistakes on this point than almost any other. The fact is, many people think they understand economy when they really do not. 47. Which of the following statements best expresses the main idea of the passage? a. Getting a job is easier now than it ever has been before. b. Earning money is much less difficult than managing it properly. c. Dr. Franklin advocated getting a job in a mill. d. Spending money is the greatest temptation in the world. ATI TEAS Practice Test #1 48. What would this author’s attitude likely be to a person unable to find employment? a. descriptive b. conciliatory c. ingenuous d. incredulous 49. According to the author, what is more difficult than making money? a. managing money b. traveling to a mill c. reading Dickens d. understanding the economy 50. Who is the most likely audience for this passage? a. economists b. general readers c. teachers d. philanthropists 51. What is the best definition of economy as it is used in this passage? a. exchange of money, goods, and services b. delegation of household affairs c. efficient money management d. less expensive 52. Which word best describes the author’s attitude towards those who believe they understand money? a. supportive b. incriminating c. excessive d. patronizing 53. This passage is most likely taken from a(n) _____. a. self-help manual b. autobiography c. epistle d. novel ATI TEAS Practice Test #1 Mathematics Number of Questions: 36 Time Limit: 54 Minutes 1.
