Challenge of the Week

Challenge of the Week

To help your child feel more at ease with testing, try a practice test this week! Some may find it challenging (most do)! Use that feeling of being challenged to help them try tactics like “best guessing” and “deep breaths.”

Practice Tests

The practice tests available online will greatly assist in preparation for these tests. They will allow learners to clearly understand the types of questions they will see on the test and will help them better navigate the online test. We appreciate your efforts to help your child prepare for these statewide assessments by using the practice tests available. Below are the steps to access them.

  1. Click the practice test link. Take the Practice or Training Test.

  2. Make sure the guest user and guest session boxes are set to “ON” and click the green “Sign In” box.

  3. Select your child’s grade.

  4. The pink and purple boxes are for the language arts and math practice tests. If available, the orange is for the science practice test.

  5. If your child has an IEP with testing accommodations, you now have a chance to select any accommodations that you would like to have included in the practice tests. Scroll to the bottom and click the green “Select” box to move to the next page.

  6. Make sure you can hear sound with the sound check.

  7. Click “Continue” and then click “Begin Test.”

  8. Language arts and math practice test answers may be manually checked at this link: Go to the Guides!

  9. A scoring guide for the CAST training test can be found at this link: Scoring Guides. The guide provides information on alignment with the California Next Generation Science Standards, correct answers, and sample responses for constructed response items.
