These tests have been created to use with the Houghton Mifflin 3rd Grade Reading Program (2005). Each test is specifically designed to help prepare students for the California state test (STAR). Using the academic vocabulary and format, these tests have been written to mirror the released questions from the California Department of Education. Included are three 10 question tests for each story, one for comprehension, one for vocabulary, and one for spelling. Each comprehension and vocabulary test is labeled with the standard that correlates to the question. These tests will increase your students' awareness of what to expect for the test, which should help them to be more successful test takers.
