|Two on-line resources can help
students to prepare for the TAKS tests. Students have worked on these here
at school on the web, but can also access these sites from home.
For exit-level (11th grade) TAKS:
This site has 11-th grade diagnostic tests that the student takes to
determine areas of weakness. There are also interactive lessons which cover
the objectives tested and are good review materials for weak areas. Students
in TAKS Camps last year worked on this site. Navigation in the site is a
little tricky, but I have some instruction sheets that students may use.
For all grade levels of TAKS:
This is the web site of the Texas Education Agency. They have online
interactive versions of released tests.
When you go to the TEA website listed above, click on Assessment/Tests in
the menu on the left side of the page.
Then click on Student Assessment Division near the bottom of this page.
Click on Released Tests in the menu on the left side of the page.
Click on Interactive Online Versions in the middle of the page.
Choose grade at the left. Then click on the appropriate test in green beside
Example: Choose 9th Grade, and then click on Reading beside it to take the
interactive version of the 9th grade reading test that students took in
After you have answered the questions on the test, click on the Score Test
button at the bottom. A window will show the questions, objective tested,
correct answer, and your answer. At the bottom, it tells you how you scored
for each objective, and what your scale score would be.
