Training/Practice Tests


Training Tests are designed to provide students and teachers with opportunities to familiarize themselves with the software, user interfaces and navigation tools that they will use on the online tests.  The questions on the Training Tests were selected to provide students with an opportunity to practice a range of question types and may be the same for multiple grades.


Practice Tests mirror the content of the various tests. The Practice Tests allows teachers, students, parents and other interested parties to experience a full assessment and gain insight into how the test will assess mastery of appropriate content standards.
