Help students succeed on standardized tests!
The questions supporting this test are specifically designed to review the following skills:
• Finding the Main Idea
• Reading for Detail
• Understanding Vocabulary
• Making Inferences
• Understanding Cause and Effect
• Understanding Author's Purpose
• Understanding Fact and Opinion
This four-page practice test was culled from the reading skills practice tests provided three times a year to Scholastic News Senior Edition subscribers, with some new and revised material. By familiarizing students with the skills, language, and formats they will encounter on state and national tests, like the Terra Nova, ITBS, CTBS, and MAT, this practice test will boost confidence and help raise scores.
(Practice tests 1-7 are slightly less difficult than practice tests 8-15. They are designed to be given in the first half of the school year.)
