The Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium, one of two major groups of states designing tests matched to the Common Core State Standards, has released sets of online sample test questions for grades 3-8 and 11 in English/language arts and math, the two subjects covered by the standards.

Included in the mock-up test are constructed-response, selected-response, and technology-enhanced items, as well as performance tasks, or extended-length activities that ask students to apply skills and knowledge to "real world" problems.

The new tests will be given online in participating states during the 2014-15 academic year.
