The 6 assessments in this packet are titled Types A and Types B. Type B assessments are modified versions of Type A’s. The difference in A and B is that A is slightly more challenging.
Some of B’s Differences May Be:
• Shorter questions
• Shorter answers
• Simpler vocabulary
• Simpler questions
• 3 answer choices instead of 4
• Less expectations and instructions for open questions.
The smaller assessments are 10 questions each (8 multiple choice questions, 2 open-answer questions). The final cumulative test is supposed to resemble a standardized test (16 multiple choice questions, 4 open-answer questions). Only the final cumulative comes with fill-in-the-chart type questions.
Because of the reality of standardized testing, it's important for teachers to provide students opportunities to connect their learning to test practice. These assessments are designed so that students will have practice with standardized formats, BUT always include open-answer questions for the teacher to gauge how well students can demonstrate their knowledge in writing.
