This is a helpful practice test for the American Government AIR Test given in Ohio. This AIR practice test is designed to be a simple way for students to review for the AIR test. I made a Google Form with over 50 questions from released test materials for the AIR Test. This way, students can use it as AIR test review as many times as they'd like (or, more typically, as many times as I make them!). This is review for the American Government AIR test, I also have a practice test for the American History AIR test that you can view by clicking here
The state department of education has their own practice tests online, but I found them to be clunky and unhelpful. They originally didn't grade the test for the students and they break up their practices tests into many different links. This test has an Answer Key pre-set and will make the correct answers immediately viewable to the students after they submit it. I've also written sample information for the essay questions to give context. Alternatively, you can use Flubaroo to automatically grade and share their results with them.
These 50+ questions have a variety of formats (multiple choice, matching, short answer, essay). They will appear in random orders and the multiple choice options will be randomized as well. When possible, I recreated the experience of using the state test in terms of the format of their questions. When I couldn't replicate the state's experience, I made note of the change and used the next best equivalent from Google Forms.
When you purchase this resource, you will download a set of instructions with a link to the Google Form. When you go to the linked form, you will need to create a copy of it for your own Google Drive account. You will then have the ability to edit the form as you desire.

Note: I will be unable to provide tech support for using Google Forms. Google has help articles online for how to send the form to your students, but because they unexpectedly change their interface and operations I won't be able to keep any tutorials up to date. If you know how to use Google Forms, this will be easy for you.
