CST - California Standards Test
This coming May, students will be tested on their "Mastery" of Third Grade Required Skills.
Although teachers are restricted by law from giving out any sample test questions, Parents are permitted to have access to these test questions online.
These test questions can be printed out and shared with your child.
Although performance on these tests is not necessarily an indication of how well your child will do on the actual test, it certainly gives your child access to questions and the test format that they otherwise would not have. This in itself will benefit your child's performance.
Click on the California Department of Education link below to enter the government site posting questions from all subject areas that were on previous state tests. I suggeswt that pages be downloaded from this site intermittently during the year so students receive practice for their tests in May.
