Giving students a practice test has multiple benefits. 1) Students will practice the skills that they will be tested on. 2) Students will get comfortable with the test format. 3) Teachers and parents will be able to identify which students are and are not prepared for the actual test and can plan interventions accordingly.
Even if you do not live in the state of Indiana, this product is great practice for ANY multiple choice language arts assessment, especially state standardized tests. The test is broken down into three sections:
Section 1: Vocabulary & Word Recognition
(beginning/middle/ending sounds, synonyms/antonyms, prefixes/suffixes, multiple meaning words, context clues--13 questions total)
Section 2: Informational Text Comprehension
(2 passages with 14 questions total)
Section 3: Literary Text Comprehension
(1 poem and 1 short story with 13 questions total)
Also included with this product is a set of teacher directions that specify how to administer the test, including how much time to allow for each section.
