Released Items

Each year, some items on the prior state assessment are released to help educators and families better understand the expectations of the assessment and to analyze student performance. There are separate paper-based and computer-based released item documents. Most Rhode Island students took the computer-based RICAS tests. Generally, only students with an IEP or 504 plan requiring a paper-based test took paper-based assessments.

Item-level student scoring information for RICAS assessments is available in the RI Assessment Data Portal via RIDEmap (https://ridemap.ride.gov) and on Individual Student Reports shipped to districts.

  • Computer-based RICAS Released Items are available on the RICAS Resource Center.
    • http://ricas.pearsonsupport.com/released-items/
    • Released items from the computer-based version of the test are available online at the Pearson RICAS Resource Center. The computer-based released items are collected in a mini test called an ePAT (electronic practice assessment tool). Items in the ePAT are displayed in TestNav 8, the testing platform for the computer-based tests. Once you click into a subject and grade in the Resource Center, you will see a link to the released items (the ePAT) and the Released Item Answer Key/Scoring Rubric document. This document maps the items in two tables. The first table maps the released items to the student reports/district and school files and the second maps the non-released items to the student report/district and school files.
  • Paper-based RICAS Released Items are available below. Please note that as the RICAS assessment was created by Massachusetts, some links within documents will take users to the Massachusetts Department of Education website.

    • To use RICAS student item score information with released item documents for paper-based assessments, utilize the grade and content specific documents below. Within each released item document, two tables map the released items to the student item data in the student report and district and school files. The first maps the released items to the student reports/district and school files and the second maps the non-released items to the student report/district and school files.
