Use the same testing software as students to see what your student or child encounters during the testing! Try out an English language arts or math test to learn how the test works, what’s expected of students and what kind of questions are included on them. With unlimited tests limits, Smarter Balanced Practice test is sure to make your student or child feel confident on testing day.

  • Practice tests, used in all Smarter Balanced states and territories, are available in grades 3-8 and high school. They are similar in format and structure to the actual test and include about 30 questions. Each state and territory has its own practice test, so be sure to use the one where you live (see the list on the right).
  • Training tests are shorter than practice tests and offer a sample of six questions so students can become familiar with the testing software. Training tests are available in three grade bands: grades 3-5, grades 6-8, and high school.
