Online Practice Tests Are Now Able To Be ScoredThe half-length practice tests will now feature real-time item scoring to allow a student immediate feedback on each item. The item score will show how many points the student earned for the response, how many points are possible for the item, and information about why the student’s response was correct or incorrect. The practice tests will not provide test scores (e.g., no scale score, no performance level) or item scoring information for test administrators.
To obtain scores on half-length practice test items, users need to select the End Test icon on the top row of the screen. This icon only appears on screen when the user reaches the last question in the practice test session. Constructed response items are not eligible for scoring by computer. A scoring rubric is available in the Item Release Scoring Guide for each set of these practice items. For released constructed response items, educators can use the scoring rubrics as tools for providing feedback on student responses.
