Practice Tests from the Nevada Department of Education

For 3rd and 4th graders, the CRT covers math and reading in a multiple-choice format. The 5th grade test also includes science. For CRT practice tests, the Nevada Department of Education is the official online resource. The tests are categorized by grade level and are available as PDF files.

In addition to practice tests, the Nevada Department of Education provides access to detailed information about the CRT and answers to frequently asked questions. These answers address everything from how the CRT is constructed to whether or not home-schooled students may participate. You'll also find the state's testing calendar, CRT administrator manuals, scoring guides and information about achievement levels. You can also download examples of reading passages based on the Nevada English/Language Arts Clarification of Grade Level Expectations and Depth of Knowledge.

CRT Information from the Utah State Office of Education

Here, you can find blueprints for the math, language arts and science tests. In Utah, the math CRT is given to 2nd graders. Students in 3rd grade are assessed on reading and math, while 4th and 5th graders are tested on all three subjects (language arts, math and science). You can find information on each test by downloading the PDF blueprints, which provide information about the number of questions and types of questions that will be asked.

The Texas Education Agency's Released Exams

Because standardized tests tend to be similar all over the nation, it can be helpful to use practice tests from other states to help your child get ready. The Texas Education Agency's archives are a solid source for practice tests. The Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (TAKS) tests cover 3rd and 4th grade reading and math. The 5th grade TAKS exam also includes a science section. Something that makes the Texas Education Agency's site unique is that the released exams are available in Spanish.
