Proficiency Test Practice from EDinformatics

For multiple-choice practice questions and information about proficiency tests around the country, check out EDinformatics. This site has a number of online tests and practice questions that your child can take.

Tests and Study Guides from the Texas Education Agency

The Texas Education Agency offers a solid example of what a state can offer for proficiency test preparation. Because state-mandated 5th grade core learning standards are usually very similar from state to state, the released exams and answer keys that you'll find here may be quite useful even if you don't live in Texas.

In addition to released exams, you'll also find free study guides that you can download and print. In these guides, you'll find a note to parents with tips on how to help your child prepare, review activities and sample questions. Along with each activity, you'll find a learning objective and an explanation, so you'll know exactly what your child is supposed to achieve.
