I've created a program that has a central database of prep-questions for the
science assessment.  The question are created by participants in the
workshops I've been giving at ESU and anyone with the program can create or
export practice questions sorted by grade and/or standard.  There are
currently 336 questions total for grades 4, 7 and both HS exams (from about
90 attendees so far).  There will be about 135 more people attending the
workshops in January and adding questions as well, so it will continue to

You can download the program at
you'd like--there's a Mac and Windows version.  It's not a program
"installs"—it makes no entries in your computer registries, etc.  You just
have to unzip the folder you download (for Windows—Mac people just download
it and go) and then you're good to go (make sure you unzip it if you're
using the windows version—it won't work if it's zipped).  It's an
internet-based database, so any questions are accessible from anywhere.

Feel free to pass it along to middle & elem teachers you know.  I just ask
that if you use questions from the database that you also add some to the
pool (sort-of a "Take a penny, leave a penny" idea).

Let me know if you have any questions!  Kelly
