Our abbreviated* Common Core Practice Tests
- 3 Reading (ELA) and 3 Math practice tests with 195 questions aligned to the new Common Core Standards.
- Answer keys that identify the exact standards, foundational skills, and topics defined by the Common Core.
The Common Core State Standards is a U.S. initiative in education whose main goal is to align curriculum across states from Kindergarten to 12th Grade. In order to assess such curriculum, states must adhere to standardized testing assessments.
The stated purpose of the Common Core State Standards is to “provide a consistent, clear understanding of what students are expected to learn, so teachers and parents know what they need to do to help them.” To learn more about the Common Core State Standards, please check out our blog post here.
*Our six abbreviated practice tests should take a total of roughly 3 hours to complete, with each set of tests (1 ELA & 1 Math) taking about 1 hour. The actual Common Core test takes roughly 6 hours to complete over the course of three days. Aristotle Circle has determined which question types will appear with the most frequency on the actual test.
