About the Test
Multiple Choice
Sample multiplechoice math questions are designed to assess CCLS math standards and incorporate both standards and math practices in realworld applications. Math multiplechoice questions assess procedural and conceptual standards. Unlike questions on past math assessments, many require the use of multiple skills and concepts. Answer choices are also different from those on past assessments. Within the sample questions, all distractors will be based on plausible missteps.
Short Answer (2Point Holistic Rubric)
Math short constructed response questions are similar to past 2point questions, asking students to complete a task and show their work. Like multiplechoice questions, short constructed response questions will often require multiple steps, the application of multiple math skills, and realworld applications. Many of the short constructed response questions will cover conceptual and application standards.
