LEAP Resources from the Louisiana Department of Education

The Louisiana Department of Education (LDOE) offers official information about the LEAP tests at its website. Based on Louisiana's Grade-Level Expectations, most 8th graders must meet the Basic/Approaching Basic skill standards as set by the state of Louisiana in order to move on to the 9th grade.

A few weeks before your 8th grader takes the LEAP, you can give him or her LEAP practice tests. Practice tests will help your child become accustomed to time constraints and the types of questions on the LEAP. The LDOE is the go-to site to get practice test booklets, answer keys and math reference sheets. You can view these in your browser or download the PDF files and print them.

Practice Tests from Charlie French

For more 8th grade LEAP practice exams and other resources, you can check out Charlie French's website. Although there are handy links to the Louisiana Department of Education's test pages, this is not all Charlie French offers. There are LEAP pre-tests, short tests and released exams going as far back as 2001.

In addition, there are a variety of English/language arts and math lessons designed to help your child prepare for the LEAP tests. These lessons are organized into various categories, making it simple to find precisely what your 8th grader needs to practice. The English/language arts section offers dozens of lessons in reading, responding, writing and proofreading. The math section includes lessons in algebra, measurement, patterns, number relations, data analysis and geometry.

FunBrain.com's Skill Builders

FunBrain.com's games can be useful when your 8th grader is reviewing for the LEAP tests. In addition to games, there are activities, e-books, comics, Mad Libs and puzzles. A typical math game offered at this site is 'Math Basketball'. The object of the game is to put a basketball through a hoop by correctly solving math problems. Games like this can be invaluable for sharpening your child's skills before taking the LEAP exam or other required tests because of the repetition.
