PSSA Sampler

These items are permitted to be used by you with students.

The 2007 PSSA Reading, Mathematics, and Writing Item and Scoring Samplers are tools to assist you with your instructional program and the reading, mathematics, and writing assessments. The samplers include test items written to focus on the Pennsylvania Academic Standards for writing and the Pennsylvania Assessment Anchor Content Standards (Assessment Anchors) for reading and mathematics. The items in the samplers will not appear on any operational form of the 2007 PSSA; however, they do provide examples of the types of items that will appear on the 2007 reading, mathematics, and writing assessments.
