G R A D ECA L I F O R N I A S TA N DA R D S T E S TMathReleased Test Questions3Introduction - Grade 3 MathematicsThe following released test questions are taken from the Grade 3 Mathematics Standards Test. This test is oneof the California Standards Tests administered as part of the Standardized Testing and Reporting (STAR)Program under policies set by the State Board of Education.All questions on the California Standards Tests are evaluated by committees of content experts, includingteachers and administrators, to ensure their appropriateness for measuring the California academic contentstandards in Grade 3 Mathematics. In addition to content, all items are reviewed and approved to ensure theiradherence to the principles of fairness and to ensure no bias exists with respect to characteristics such asgender, ethnicity, and language.This document contains released test questions from the California Standards Test forms in 2003, 2004, 2005,and 2006. First on the pages that follow are lists of the standards assessed on the Grade 3 Mathematics Test.Next are released test questions. Following the questions is a table that gives the correct answer for each question,the content standard that each question is measuring, and the year each question last appeared on the test.The following table lists each strand/reporting cluster, the number of items that appear on the exam, and thenumber of released test questions that appear in this document.STRAND/REPORTINGCLUSTERNUMBER OFQUESTIONS ONEXAMNUMBER OFRELEASED TESTQUESTIONSNumber Sense – Place Value, Fractions, and Decimals1616Number Sense – Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication,and Division1615Algebra and Functions1212Measurement and Geometry1616556564Statistics, Data Analysis, and ProbabilityTOTALIn selecting test questions for release, three criteria are used: (1) the questions adequately cover a selection ofthe academic content standards assessed on the Grade 3 Mathematics Test; (2) the questions demonstrate arange of difficulty; and (3) the questions present a variety of ways standards can be assessed. These releasedtest questions do not reflect all of the ways the standards may be assessed. Released test questions will notappear on future tests.For more information about the California Standards Tests, visit the California Department of Education’sWeb site at http://www.cde.ca.gov/ta/tg/sr/resources.asp.— 1 —This is a sample of California Standards Test questions.

G R A D E3C A L I F O R N I A S TA N DA R D S T E S TMathReleased Test QuestionsTHE NUMBER SENSE STRANDIn Grade 3, there are two reporting clusters within the Number Sense strand: 1) Place Value, Fractions, andDecimals and 2) Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication, and Division. This booklet contains released testquestions for each of these clusters.The following nine California content standards are included in the Place Value, Fractions, and Decimalsreporting cluster of the Number Sense strand and are represented in this booklet by 16 test questions. Thesequestions represent only some ways in which these standards may be assessed on the Grade 3 CaliforniaMathematics Standards Test.CALIFORNIA CONTENT STANDARDS IN THIS REPORTING CLUSTERNumber SenseStandard Set 1.0Students understand the place value of whole numbers:3NS1.1Count, read, and write whole numbers to 10,000.3NS1.2Compare and order whole numbers to 10,000.3NS1.3*Identify the place value for each digit in numbers to 10,000.3NS1.4Round off numbers to 10,000 to the nearest ten, hundred, and thousand.3NS1.5*Use expanded notation to represent numbers (e.g., 3,206 3,000 200 6).Standard Set 3.0Students understand the relationship between whole numbers, simplefractions, and decimals:3NS3.1Compare fractions represented by drawings or concrete materials to showequivalency and to add and subtract simple fractions in context (e.g., 1/2 of apizza is the same amount as 2/4 of another pizza that is the same size; showthat 3/8 is larger than 1/4).3NS3.2*Add and subtract simple fractions (e.g., determine that 1/8 3/8 is the same as1/2).3NS3.3*Solve problems involving addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division ofmoney amounts in decimal notation and multiply and divide money amounts indecimal notation by using whole-number multipliers and divisors.3NS3.4Know and understand that fractions and decimals are two differentrepresentations of the same concept (e.g., 50 cents is 1/2 of a dollar, 75 cents is3/4 of a dollar).* Denotes key standards (Mathematics Framework for California Public Schools)— 2 —This is a sample of California Standards Test questions.

These questions represent only some ways inwhich these standards may be assessed on the Grade 3 California Mathematics Standards Test.CALIFORNIA CONTENT STANDARDS IN THIS STRAND/CLUSTERAlgebra and FunctionsStandard Set 1.0Students select appropriate symbols, operations, and properties torepresent, describe, simplify, and solve simple number relationships:3AF1.1*Represent relationships of quantities in the form of mathematical expressions,equations, or inequalities.3AF1.2Solve problems involving numeric equations or inequalities.3AF1.3Select appropriate operational and relational symbols to make an expressiontrue (e.g., if 4 3 12, what operational symbol goes in the blank?).3AF1.4Express simple unit conversions in symbolic form (e.g., inches feet 12).3AF1.5Recognize and use the commutative and associative properties of multiplication(e.g., if 5 7 35, then what is 7 5? and if 5 7 3 105, then what is7 3 5?).Standard Set 2.0Students represent simple functional relationships:3AF2.1*Solve simple problems involving a functional relationship between two quantities(e.g., find the total cost of multiple items given the cost per unit).3AF2.2Extend and recognize a linear pattern by its rules (e.g., the number of legs on agiven number of horses may be calculated by counting by 4s or by multiplyingthe number of horses by 4).* Denotes key standards (Mathematics Framework for California Public Schools)— 4 —This is a sample of California Standards Test questions.
