Free review tests, or practice tests for the end of the year? I want to test my kids from last year's grades to see what they do and don't know for sure (I have a good idea, but want a definite).  I'm finding all kinds of worksheets, but not really any EOG sample tests. My kids are in grade school (going into 2nd and 4th grade).

There are soooo many websites out there, it would take me forever to go through them all:)

That just might help, I'll have to explore it for a while! Thank you. Even though I'm in NC, it should be close, I would think:)

I recently found this website www.easytestmaker.com  where you can make your own tests.

Haven't tried it yet but it looks cool.

Yes, the released Texas tests (link provided earlier) are the only place to find standardized tests online.

There is a good test site that's only $20 for Math & Reading that I like:

www.letsgolearn.com/lglsite/homeschool/

You can also compare what you've taught to your state's curriculum standards:

www.ncpublicschools.org/curriculum/

Or the World Book sequence:

www.worldbook.com/wb/Students

Our curriculum uses the Test Ready books from Curriculum Associates.  I actually have Language Arts & Reading for 4th grade if you'd like them.  I'll send both for one credit.
