Each year, RIDE releases a few test items from the previous year's test. These items are not "throw aways" or bad items, but instead are selected to provide teachers with another resource to improve their courses.


On this site, we have created two pages for each test item. The first page contains only the test item. The second page includes the item as well as prompts for analyzing the item. These prompts include:
  • The corresponding GSE
  • Depth of Knowledge
  • Critical Skills and Concepts
  • Explanation of Correct Choice
  • Explanation of Incorrect Choices
