TASC/ORT Style Problem Assessment Packet, Aligned to Units 1-4


Students need to experience ORT and TASC style questions as they develop their understanding through the framework. To that end, Todd Orelli (of NYC’s District 79) went through the three available (at the time) TASC Official Readiness Tests and collected all of the problems that correlate with Units 1-4 from the Framework. Out of 60 questions, 13 deal directly with the topics in these Units. Using those questions as a guide, and the Framework as an anchor, he created the 46 problems included in this resource to serve both as assessments and to improve student familiarity with the look and feel of the exam.
  • Unit 1, Introducing Functions – 7 questions designed to assess and prepare students for TASC questions on identifying relations that are functions.
  • Unit 2, Three Views of a Function – 13 questions designed to assess and prepare students for TASC questions on the three views of linear functions.
  • Unit 3, Rate of Change/Starting Amount – 13 questions designed to assess and prepare students for TASC questions on rate of change and starting amount (slope and y-intercept).
  • Unit 4, Systems of Equations – 13 questions designed to assess and prepare students for TASC questions on linear systems of equations
