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.
Close Reading asks students to examine 2–3 sources and write a response to a question about each source separately.
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.
