Some practice tests for the North Carolina End-of-Grade Tests, also known as NC EOG, for math and reading are available the for the test preparation and tutoring company Time 4 Learning or by searching for practice question items on the website for Public Schools for North Carolina. As of 2015, students can use the website to view questions for practice or work with a private company and enroll in specialized instructional service to get practice tests.
Preparation for the NC EOG using Time 4 Learning may include taking practice tests and working with tutors through an online learning program to build math and language arts skills. Instruction through this test preparation program also helps students become familiar with test formats and time restrictions. Students also learn test-taking strategies, such as skimming, and practice using different strategies for different types of questions.
While the Public Schools of North Carolina website does not offer a direct practice test for items on the NC EOG writing and math exams, the site does offer specific information about the tests along with information about related curriculum standards. Students can also download and use general sample questions related to a standardized curriculum to help prepare for exams.
