Minnesota Comprehensive Assessment Grade 5 Reading Practice Test.
Minnesota State Dept. of Children, Families, and Learning, St. Paul.
Consisting of items from the 1998 Minnesota Comprehensive Assessment as well as some items created specifically for the Practice Test, this Practice Test intends to be representative of the type of test and contain items similar to those that appear on actual grade 5 reading tests. These practice tests are not intended to be psychometrically reliable test forms and are intended to familiarize teachers and students with the testing format. It gives general instructions for the tests and is divided into four Sessions each containing one to four short reading passages or exercises with questions. It also gives an Answer Booklet; a page for student open-ended response items (one per session); a Reading Answer Key; and a key for coding question and passage types in a section entitled Reading Objectives. It also presents a General Scoring Rubric and (for each of the four writing passages) an Item-Specific Scoring Rubric and five Open Response Samples from students. (SC)
