The research examibed the reliability of Surd and Quadratic Equation Test (SAQET) constructed by researchers. Three research questions and three hypotheses guided the study. Instrumentation research design was used. The study population was 5,828 SS 2 students in the 35 secondary schools in Enugu Education zone of enugu State. A sample of 583 SS2 students, drawn from 10 sampled secondary schools were used. SAQET contained 50 multiple choice achievement test items on surdsand quadratic equations. Kuder-Richardson formula 20 (K-R 20) was used to compute the reliability indices of SAQET. The results show that the reliability indices of SAQET and itstwo subsections were 0.78,0.84 and 0.75 respectively. K-R 20 reliability inices for SAQET and its two subsections were each statistically significant at 0.05 level of significance. It was therefore recommended that teachers should at least determine the reliability of their classroom tests before administering them.
