This new resource differs from the Spring 2015 Preview by providing more sample test items specific to grade and content. The Sample Item Sets are grade-specific, content-specific, and will be released on a rolling schedule that mirrors the staggered testing windows.
The first phase of Sample Item Sets released will be for grades 5, 8, and 11, and will consist of one third of the total number of sample items OSA will be posting. As additional items and grades become available, OSA will communicate this information in the Spotlight.
The following Sample Item Sets are now available:
- Grade 5 ELA 17 sample items
- Grade 5 Mathematics 11 sample items
- Grade 8 ELA 17 sample items
- Grade 8 Mathematics 6 sample items
- Grade 11 ELA 15 sample items
- Grade 11 Mathematics 7 sample items
