This resource contains five 8th grade math assessments developed by a group of teachers in New York that are aligned with the New York Common Core Learning standards with the purpose of preparing students for the New York State Math assessment. Each test contains multiple choice and short answer questions relevant to 8th grade curriculum. The area of focus for each assessment is similar with problems becoming increasingly more difficult with each test. Topics include slope, linear equations, scientific notation, functions, and systems of linear equations. This resource does not include answer keys and some of the multiple choice questions do not have a correct option. Although, these assessments could be used to evaluate student understanding be sure to create an answer key before using, so all questions have the correct option available. The questions are age appropriate and most are well written. These test will provided useful insight to student knowledge.
