Technology Practice Test

The Alaska Measures of Progress (AMP) Technology Practice Test is now available. The purpose of the Technology Practice Tests is to familiarize students with Alaska’s new computer-based test delivery system (called KITE) and to give them an opportunity to practice the types of questions that will be on the AMP assessments.
The Technology Practice Tests are not meant to illustrate the rigor and complexity of the questions students will encounter on the test this spring. The Technology Practice Tests cover only a small amount of the content in the Alaska English Language Arts and Math Standards and should not be used to inform instruction.
