Product Components

Assessment practice tests are conducted in an interactive environment and include optional scaffolding to help students better understand instructions.

Each Next Generation Assessment Practice test consists of two parts.

  1. Close Reading asks students to examine 2–3 sources and write a response to a question about each source separately.
  2. Writing to Multiple Sources asks students to write a response to a question and cite evidence from all of the sources they have examined.

Three practice tests are provided for each grade level—one per Common Core State Standards text type (Narrative, Informative/Explanatory, and Opinion or Argument)—and allow students to respond to both texts and videos.
