Practice Reading Tests
The complete Sentence Skills Test is not available for preview. If you would like to see the results page for a completed Sentence Skills Test click the link below.
Each practice test contains 20 multiple-choice questions. There are primarily two types of questions on the Reading Test.
The first type of question consists of a reading passage followed by a question based on the text. Both short and long passages are provided. The reading passages can also be classified according to the kind of information processing required, including explicit statements related to the main idea, explicit statements related to a secondary idea, application, and inference.
The second type of question, sentence relationships, presents two sentences followed by a question about the relationship between these two sentences. The question may ask, for example, if the statement in the second sentence supports that in the first, if it contradicts it, or if it repeats the same information.
You will notice that each page on the first ten questions is divided into two parts. The top half of the page allows you to scroll through the passage using the scroll bar on your right. The bottom half shows the question that needs to be answered.
Read each passage carefully and then answer its questions. You may not need to re-read the passage, but it remains available if you need it. When you click on your selected answer, the program will go immediately to the next question. There will be no opportunity to change an answer after you make your choice.
When the test is completed, you will be given your score, shown the questions that were missed, and offered an opportunity to see how each question was correctly answered.
You do not need to complete a practice test in one sitting. You may return to the test at any time and continue working on a partially completed test or review any test that you completed previously.
