Children will perform at their highest level if they have time to practice and develop test-taking skills.

EDinformatics' Practice Tests

EDinformatics has practice tests and sample questions from multiple states. You can find sample questions as well as entire tests. Since most state standards are similar, you can likely use another state's test to get more practice questions.

EDinformatics also has links to curriculum guides and state standards so you can make sure you're aware of what your child needs to study. Take advantage of the other useful information on this site that discusses standardized tests in general and new developments.

Have Fun Teaching's Language Arts Worksheets

Have Fun Teaching has downloadable reading comprehension worksheets, which you can use with your child to practice language arts skills for future assessments. Other worksheets cover grammar, mechanics, reading fluency and sentence construction. After giving a practice test and grading it, you can evaluate the results to determine where your 7th grade student needs help and use these worksheets as a review.

FCAT Reading Test Sample and Tips

Florida's Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT) has a downloadable booklet with a sample test, answer key and practice tips for the 7th grade reading assessment. Even if you don't life in Florida, you will likely find this test helpful because there are two reading passages and 16 sample questions to answer. It takes approximately 35-45 minutes to complete. The test-taking tips include reading the directions and passages carefully and completing the most difficult questions first.

Sample tests like this help prepare kids for the longer assessment by exposing them to a real testing environment. If done in small doses throughout the year, your child will become familiar with the experience of testing and feel prepared when it is time for the real assessment.
