The Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers has released hundreds of test questions from its 2015 assessment. The items are available on the consortium's Partnership Resource Center website.

The consortium also hopes that seeing the released items will help parents understand the test, so that the "assessments aren't a mystery," the consortium's statement said.
