The 8th grade student version of our practice test is good for grades 6 through 8.
Our set of practice tests currently stand as the most up-to-date books for preparing students for the California Science Test (CAST). The NGSS standards are adopted by 26 of the 50 states with an emphasis on teaching science 3-Dimensionally through the DCI’s, the SEP’s and the CCC’s. These books are tailored to prepare students for California’s CAST.
The format of our books, with spiral bound, represents our endeavor to provide schools and districts the lowest price possible for the books.
Once you buy our books, you will have in your hand books that have been tested in the field and have proven to raise student scores by 30% when used per our suggestions. The questions closely model the rigor of the Smarter Balanced practice test found at the CAASPP.org portal. The difference between our practice test and the ones on the portal is that our test allows for teachers to know how individual questions line up with the specific standards being tested. Our test also allows a teacher to test the entire classroom and then give individual scores out to individual students, showing them where they need added instruction for different areas of the science standards.
If you need help purchasing the books, feel free to contact [email protected]. The student books contain the questions and the teacher books have, in addition to the questions, the answers to every question with an explanation of how the question tests specific concepts. This test was created by science teachers for science teachers and the team we put together included professors from Stanford and Berkley as well as teachers from more than one district.
Take advantage of our special pricing today and feel free to email us to ask about our suggested method of guiding your students into a successful utilization of the concepts so that they could become inquisitive science practitioners solving real-world problems.
