These are my 8th Grade Common Core Math Tests for use throughout the year. My curriculum is divided into four grading periods, and each grading period is divided into four 2-week units. I searched through available online Common Core samples and rearranged, organized, and modified these test questions to fit into two week units that make sense and are truly useable.
Included are 16 unit tests with answer keys, 16 mirroring unit pretests with answer keys, and four quarterly pretests with answer keys, each covering four units per grading period. I use the quarterly pretest at the beginning of each grading period as a benchmark for measuring growth. The unit pretest questions are great for class or small group discussion and practice throughout each unit as formative assessments. And, of course, I use the unit tests at the end of each unit as a summative measure of growth. I always require students to show work, even on multiple choice or fill in.
There are also some great unit guides, unit quizzes (focusing on vocabulary and skill), virtual labs, interactivities, and fun review games and puzzles available in My TpT Store to support learning toward success in solving the Common Core math problems on these tests -- Check ‘em Out!
