Samples released from Spring 2010 TCAP
These Item Samplers contain questions that are representative of the types of questions from the Spring TCAP Achievement Test. Each test item in the Item Sampler is presented with the Reporting Category and Performance Indicator. In a classroom learning session, these questions can be used to prepare students for the actual test. An answer key for the sample questions is provided at the end of each Item Sampler.
