PRACTICE TEST AND TRAINING TEST
Oregon Department of Education and Paisley School recommend that all students have an opportunity to experience both the practice test and the training test. These tools provide students with a testing situation similar in format and structure to the state assessments (practice test) and an opportunity to focus on the assessment system’s functionality and user interface (training test).
