Note from the author:
This check assesses student understanding of simple interest, percent change, and percent error. Students were expected to earn at least 80% (4 out of 5 questions correct) to be considered proficient. I chose short answer as I expected students to get an accurate calculation and to round to the nearest hundredth or tenth depending on the problem.
