The Florida’s Postsecondary Education Readiness Test (P.E.R.T.) measures a student's readiness for taking College level courses. This exam will determine if you are ready to take Intermediate Algebra to College Algebra. Scoring too low may put you into a remedial course like Developmental Math where you earn the pre-requisite to take Intermediate Algebra, but the PERT can be retaken to score higher.
College Algebra is often times the course required to graduate with an Associates in Florida, but note that Intermediate Algebra will usually count towards the completion of your degree as well.
