Delaware Student Testing Program Item Sampler: Released Mathematics Items, Grades 3, 5, 8, and 10.
Delaware State Dept. of Education, Dover.
The Delaware Student Testing Program (DSTP) is designed to assess progress toward the Delaware Content Standards. Every year a certain number of items are removed from the test and then selected for public release. This booklet contains items released from the 1998 administration of the DSTP mathematics component tests. Taken as a whole, these items represent a broad cross section of item types and topics measured. They also show the evolution in the construction of items and their rubrics. There may not be sample items for each grade for the four categories of mathematics concepts, but at each grade, no more than half a dozen items can be released. Each released item is accompanied by an answer key, whether an answer option or an item-specific rubric. For the mathematics items, concepts and procedures are measured in: (1) number concepts; (2) patterns and algebra; (3) geometry; and (4) statistics and probability. (SLD)
