Practice and Training Tests
The Smarter Balanced Practice Test (updated in May 2014) and the Training Test (released in February 2014) provide students with an early look at sets of assessment questions aligned to the Common Core for grades 3-8 and 11 in both English language arts/literacy and mathematics.
