  1. On the first page you will click on "Sign In" on the first page.
  2. The next page will ask you to select a grade level and then click "Yes."
  3. You will then have a choice of 6 different tests in Math and ELA (English Language Arts).

The Practice Test is a sample of questions that are similar to actual test questions. The Performance Task is a multi-step project type problem. Click to choose the test.
