Correct Answers to Questions on Practice and Training Tests


Although student responses are not saved or scored within Practice and Training Tests, in combination with other materials, students can learn from these sample tests by using available answer keys and scoring guides.


The website for the Smarter Balanced Consortium contains Scoring Guides for the Practice Tests (a Scoring Guide gives correct answers as well as guidelines as to how more complex questions would be scored).   Scoring Guides for Practice Tests are available at this link.

Training Tests are usually a blend of questions across several grade levels that are extracted from multiple Practice Tests.  For example, you will see that the Training Test available for 3rd grade Math is labeled Grade 3-5 Training Test, therefore may include items from the Practice Tests for grades 3-5.

For your convenience, below are links to the answer keys for the Training Tests.
Each answer key document provides the answers for training tests for all grade levels.
