This guide has been developed by experienced educators and curriculum specialists to provide Louisiana educators with information regarding assessment strategies used on the Louisiana Educational Assessment Program (LEAP) Grade 11 test (successful completion of which is required for graduation), as well as suggested instructional approaches for enhancing student proficiency in the skill areas covered on the examination. The materials in this guide will be useful in a variety of settings, including regular classes and LEAP-focused review/remedial classes. The guide is organized in a manner that permits flexible use, each section being self-contained to facilitate use by educators who choose to focus on a specific content area. Four skill areas are covered: history of the United States, civics, free enterprise, and social studies. For each skill area a sample item is presented that is representative of the LEAP test area. A description of test questions follows, including format and content, along with the basic characteristics of an item's answer choices. Descriptive information is also provided for the categories of incorrect answer choices. Then the correct and incorrect answer choices for the sample item are identified. Finally, instructional considerations relevant to preparing students for the various skill areas tested on the LEAP examination are described. A list of social studies terms that may be included on the examination is provided. (JB)
