In this paper we are trying to differentiate the level of mathematical abilities of high school graduates in Bahrain schools. The mathematical abilities that we are trying to analyse are conceptual understanding, content knowledge and problemsolving skills. content understanding focusses on performing algorithms, while conceptual understanding focus on comprehending the concepts and relations. Problem solving needs both. We will prepare test items to measure graduates on different mathematics
