Grade 8 Math Tests and Topic Quizzes
This is where the Core Math Curriculum takes the biggest jump, in my opinion. There is a steep learning curve. My theory seems to be backed by a recent survey that asked students which subject they liked best in school. The biggest decrease occurred in 8th grade students choosing math (year-over-year) for the survey; right after the core curriculum had the largest adoption rate.
- Grade 8 Common Core
Test Sampler - A twenty question sampler of the most common
questions that we see asked on standard exams for this level.
Choice Questions Form A - I tend to make my tests a little longer
than the samples I have seen to make sure I cover the entire curriculum.
Response Questions Form B - From being in contact with the academic
consultants for the core test development it seems they are trying
to ask more questions in this format in the future.
Response Questions Form C - You will often see these types of
questions with multiple choice answers at the State level.
System, Statistics & Probability Quiz - Due to the limited number
of standards, I combined these areas.
and Equations Quiz - Two recent State samples took questions
from our site verbatim in this section. We must be hitting the target.
Quiz - This is a very unique topic. Half of the questions are
easy and the rest are very difficult. Seems like there is minimal
balance at this level.
- Geometry Quiz - From the recent assessment numbers I have seen, this section is giving students the most difficulty at this level.
