Are there online CBT practice tests for students?

Yes, there are online practice tests, called "Samplers," available for students, teachers, and parents to use in every subject/grade level. The practice tests are comprised of pre-released NYS test questions. Constructed response questions, where the student must type their answer to respond, are typically the last 2-3 questions in each sampler. 

Practice Tests are available via the online Question Sampler:

  • 3 Samplers per subject/grade
  • 3 Samplers per student testing accommodation:
    • Text-to-Speech
    • Reverse Contrast
    • Background Color
    • Answer Masking
    • Initial Zoom
  • 3 Samplers per translated language(Chinese Traditional, Haitian Creole, Korean, Russian, Spanish)

Note: the online Question Sampler only works in the Chrome browser as this environment most closely resembles the operational test system (the Nextera Test Delivery System).
