California Department of Education – State Testing (CST/STAR)
This link is to the practice tests for the annual state testing. Students should have a blank sheet of paper, pencil and eraser to practice for the test. Students should do a few problems each day, and check their answers (at the end of the test). If an answer is incorrect, please have them try to figure out why, if they cannot figure out where they make their mistake, then you or their teacher can assist them. They should be sure to show any work for Math or other problems.
