In order to ensure Louisiana students are prepared for college and Louisiana's economy, our state is moving to higher standards and new assessments.  The Louisiana Department of Education will highlight one sample question each day to help Louisiana educators and families preview Louisiana's new 2014-15 assessments.  These new assessments were developed with significant input from Louisiana educators who have served as key partners in identifying content for the test, developing the specific items, and guiding the technology specifications.


Today's sample question is from 8th Grade English Language Arts.  In this question, a student will be asked to read a passage and use context clues to determine the author's meaning of unfamiliar vocabulary words.
