Sample Question - 3th Grade Math
• Domain: Operations and Algebraic Thinking
• Item: MC
• Two groups of students from Douglas Elementary
School were walking to the library when it began
to rain. The 7 students in Mr. Stem’s group shared
the 3 large umbrellas they had with Ms. Thorn’s
group of 11 students. If the same number of
students were under each umbrella, how many
students were under each umbrella?
Alignment & Analysis
• Aligned CCLS: 3.OA.8, 3.OA.2
• Commentary: This question aligns to CCLS 3.OA.8 and assesses the
student’s ability to solve a two-step word problem using addition
and division of whole numbers. It also aligns to 3.OA.2 because it
assesses the ability to partition a number into equal groups.
• Rationale: The total number of students in the two groups is 18 (7 +
11), so 18 must be divided into 3 equal groups; therefore, 6
students are in each group. Selecting Options B and D could indicate
relating of the numbers in the problem with incorrect operations
(adding 7 and 3 in B and multiplying 7 and 3 in D) and therefore a
lack of understanding of the problem. Selecting Option C indicates
that a student had knowledge of how to begin the problem, by
adding the two groups together, but then forgot to divide the
students into 3 equal groups.
Sample Question - 8th Grade Math
• Domain: Functions
• Item: CR
• A trainer for a professional football team keeps track of the
amount of water players consume throughout practice. The
trainer observes that the amount of water consumed is a
linear function of the temperature on a given day. The
trainer finds that when it is 90°F the players consume about
220 gallons of water, and when it is 76°F the players
consume about 178 gallons of water.
– Part A: Write a linear function to model the relationship
between the gallons of water consumed and the temperature.
– Part B: Explain the meaning of the slope in the context of the
problem.
Alignment & Analysis
• Aligned CCLS: 8.F.4
• Commentary: This question aligns to CCLS 8.F.4
because it assesses a student’s ability to construct a
function that models a linear relationship from a
description of a relationship between two values (x,y)
and interpret the rate of change.
• Rationale: The correct answer indicates the ability to
construct a function to model a linear relationship.
Given that water consumption is a function of
temperature, the values cited in the problem are
understood as coordinate pairs that can be related by a
linear function.
