Public Schools of North Carolina's Sample Items

The Public Schools of North Carolina State Board of Education has free fourth grade reading sample items and more information about the EOG. The sample items include passages from a variety of genres, including poetry, fiction, nonfiction, content and consumer texts. Students are asked to read a passage and answer questions about the content. Some of the questions ask students to define vocabulary in context as well.

In addition, a full test from 2009 is available to download and print from the website. You will also find an answer key and score conversion guide.

EDinformatics' Released Tests

EDinformatics has full and sample tests for most states that can be downloaded. Answer keys are also provided. Although the North Carolina EOG test is not available for reading comprehension, most states test similar core standards so taking a test from a different state can be beneficial.

Full released tests are available from some states such as New York and Massachusetts. In addition, Texas and Idaho offer tests that can be taken and graded entirely online.

Pearson Longman Practice Reading Tests

Pearson Longman has free practice reading tests available on its website for grades 1-8. The tests were developed for limited English proficiency (LEP) children, but can be used to assist any child preparing for a standardized reading test. The tests utilize a variety of multiple-choice as well as written response questions that require children to use analytical and comprehension skills.

Your child can answer the multiple-choice questions by clicking on the correct response. The short and long answer questions have an essay box with lines provided for the written response. Instructions are given about how to time the tests and score them. The tests are not graded online; however, you can print your child's answers and grade them offline.
