Released Items from the WKCE


Wisconsin Knowledge and Concepts Examinations (WKCE)

Released Items in Reading and Mathematics

The released items in reading and mathematics provide educators, students, and the public examples of how students are assessed in these subjects on the WKCE. Released items come from the test administered in fall 2005 and will not be used again on future tests. These items may be used as practice tests or for teacher professional development, for example.

The items were developed by our vendor and reviewed extensively by DPI staff and Wisconsin educators to ensure their quality and relevance. The WKCE includes a mix of multiple choice and short answer items. The short answer item answer keys include sample student responses and scoring guides.
