Common Core practice assessments

SmarterBalanced–the other Common Core assessment–has released practice tests, and they can be a great resource for building your vision. SmarterBalanced is one of the two testing consortia that are creating the Common Core assessments; though Mississippi is signed up with the other consortium, PARCC (and things are getting murkier, as some states are pulling out of either assessment), this test is fairly representative or the upcoming expectations for your students. Take a minute and go through the assessment; while there is no answer key (and you might be wondering what some of the answers are!) it will help you get a sense of the way expectations are going up!
