Test Prep- Hands down, informational nonfiction assessments are the tests our students have the most problems with. Add Part A, Part B, multiple select, PCR…. Meltdown city… unless they feel prepared. That’s what this product is meant to help with. It can also be the perfect solution for teachers who are struggling to make their comprehension tests align to the format of our most current state tests.
This product will give your students practice in an area that many struggle with before the big test rolls around. This assessment is very similar to what students have seen on the PARCC and LEAP Research Simulation Task assessments in the past couple of years. Each question is aligned with 3rd grade CCSS and LSS.
*Although this is aligned with a 3rd grade assessment, it can easily be used in grades 4-5 as do nows/ bell ringers or as a tool for differentiation.
This test contains 2 original informational passages, both with multiple choice questions in Part A/Part B and Multiple Select formats. It also contains 1 constructed response question in which students must include information from both passages, which is another important aspect of the current PARCC and LEAP tests.
This test can be used for practice or for a graded assessment.
In this product you'll get 2 versions of the assessment. They both contain the same passages; however, Version 1 has a cover page with a grading scale, the standards assessed listed, Lexile levels, and word counts for both passages. It also includes point values and the standard assessed next to each question. Version 2 does not include those “extras.” They both include:
-2 original informational passages:
“Everything You Thought You Knew About Pigs”
“Wise Old Owls”
-13 Multiple Choice Questions (most Part A and Part B, and some Multiple Select)
-1 constructed response question
-Answer Key for all questions
