Smarter Balanced Assessment

Welcome to the Training Tests and Practice Tests site. You can use this site to take training tests and practice tests online to become familiar with the Smarter Balanced Assessments, HSA Science Assessments, HSA Alternate (HSA-Alt) Assessments, and End of Course (EOC) Exams.

Training Tests are available for the Smarter Balanced Assessments, HSA Science Assessments, HSA-Alt Assessments, and EOC Exams. The short Training Tests are designed to provide students and teachers with opportunities to familiarize themselves with the software, user interfaces, and navigational tools that they will use on the respective online tests. The questions on the Training Tests were selected to provide students with an opportunity to practice a range of question types and may be the same for multiple grades. Note: Training Test Answer Keys are only provided for the HSA Science Assessment.

Practice Tests are also available for the same assessments and exams, except for the HSA-Alt Assessments. The practice tests mirror the content of the various tests. The Practice Tests allows teachers, students, parents, and other interested parties to experience a full assessment or exam and gain insight into how the test will assess students’ mastery of the appropriate content standards.

When you complete a Practice Test and click [End Test], select "Yes" to continue to the next page. Click "Review My Answers" so you can check your answer for each question while also reviewing the Scoring Guide or Answer Key provided in the link below (please note that there are no Answer Keys for the HSA-Alt Assessments). If you click "Submit Test," all of your answers will be erased. Your Practice Test answers cannot be printed.
