  • The Practice and Training Tests can be taken on any Internet-connected computer using a current Web browser including:

  • All options should read guest/guest session - Click on the Sign In button

  • What is the difference between the training test and the practice test? http://ct.portal.airast.org/training-tests/ 

Calculators are available for students (Grades 6-->)to preview and practice with outside of the testing environment. 

Equation Response Editor Tool 

  • Tutorial that explains how to use the Equation Response Editor tool, and to let students practice using it. Students may use this tool to enter answers that are numbers, expressions, or equations. The tutorial walks them through how to create common mathematical objects, and then lets them practice creating those objects.

  • If you are in elementary school, try to complete all the screens through “Practice 1.” 

  • If you are in middle school or high school, you should try to complete all the screens through “Practice 2.” If you are in middle school, however, you probably will not need to use trigonometric functions.

Info on Smarter Balanced Interim Assessments

  • CSDE Archived Assessment News

  •  

  • Multiplication Table (PDF) Single digit (1-9) multiplication table is a non-embedded accommodation for Grade 4 math items and above.   This is to be used only for students with a documented and persistent calculation disability (i.e., dyscalculia).  This can be printed for students requiring this accommodation.  

  • Important Limitations: The Practice and Training Tests provide a preview of the Smarter Balanced assessments and a more accurate depiction of both the testing environment and item types, but they do not encompass the full range of content that students will encounter on the operational assessments, and should not be used to guide instructional decisions. In addition, students and teachers will not receive reports or scores from the Practice or Training Tests. Although the operational assessment system will be computer adaptive, the Practice and Training Tests follow a fixed-form model.
