Cognitive Rigor and Item Complexity
Assessment items will be designed, developed, and classified to ensure that the cognitive rigor of the operational test forms align to the cognitive complexity and demands of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) for Mathematics. These items will require students to not only recall information, but also apply concepts and skills and make decisions.

Types of Items
• Grades 3 and 4 mathematics assessments will consist of four-response-option 
multiple-choice items.
• The Grades 5–8 mathematics assessments and the Algebra I/Integrated I assessment 
will consist of four-response-option multiple-choice items and about twenty percent
gridded-response items requiring numerical responses. NCEXTEND2 assessments
will consist of three-response-option multiple-choice items and gridded-response items.
• All CCSS mathematics assessments will include both calculator-active and 
calculator-inactive sections.  One-third to one-half of the Grades 3–8 assessments 
will be comprised of calculator-inactive items.
 The NCEXTEND1 mathematics alternate assessments will consist of fifteen 
performance-based, multiple-choice items.

Delivery Mode
• Grades 3–8 mathematics assessments will be designed for paper/pencil administrations 
and may have an online administration option.
• The Algebra I/Integrated I mathematics assessment will be designed for an online 
administration but will also be available in a paper/pencil version.
• NCEXTEND2 is an alternate assessment for students with disabilities whose IEP 
specifies an assessment aligned to the general content standards but based on modified 
academic achievement standards. The Grades 3–8 NCEXTEND2 mathematics 
assessments will closely follow the weightings of the standards on the general 
assessments. The NCEXTEND2 mathematics assessments will be designed for online 
administrations

WHEN will Math EOG's take place?  The State indicated the last 15 days of the school year.  CMS will determine district dates.
