The practice tests mirror the year-end assessment. Each grade level assessment includes a variety of question types and difficulty (approximately 30 items each in ELA and math) as well as an ELA and math performance task at each grade level (3-8 and 11). See the link for more details!
Attention High School Athletes Interested in Participating in NCAA Sports: New rules will be implemented by the NCAA for student-athletes planning to participate in Division I or Division II athletics at the college level. The NCAA determines a college student-athlete's eligibility. It is the student's and the parent's/guardian's responsibility to check with the National College Athletic Association (NCAA) and their post-secondary institution before completing or adjusting the student's schedule. The NCAA currently only accepts college preparatory classes and above. If a student-athlete wishes to participate in collegiate sports, the student and parent are advised to meet with the school counselor.
