Sample test items and practice tests

Both sample items and practice tests allow students to view and answer test questions that are like those that could appear on state tests. Teachers and parents also may use related resources to help their students know what to expect. 

Log into the Student Practice Site 

  • Login here. (“Guest Session” will appear; you need not enter information here.)
  • Select “sign in.”
  • Select a grade level, then click on “yes.”
  • Select a specific test or sample item. 

The site features half-length practice tests for science and social studies. Because the English language arts and math tests are new, there are a smaller number of sample test items available until the item development process is completed and practice tests can be released.
