The Math Pretest is a feature on Khan Academy. The user completes the test on the new Learning Dashboard. After completed, the user earns the badge Math Pretest Champion and Khan Academy will make recommendations on the skills they know and don't know. The pretest decides the skills user has not started, practiced, level 1, level 2, and mastered, and will later appear in a mastery challenge.
"The new learning dashboard is your personal homepage on Khan Academy. The dashboard gives you an easy way to find the best next things for you to do. It has a bunch of really cool things designed to help you learn math, and soon other subjects, really well on your own or with a coach. You can access it when you’re signed in by clicking on the Khan Academy logo at the top of the
page." - Khan Academy Staff
