NCEXTEND1 Glossary and Graphics

  • Glossary:  NCDPI has provided the 150 Most Frequent Words for Beginning Writers document as a glossary for the independent reading portion of the NCEXTEND 1 Language Arts/Reading grade 3-8, and 10 assessments. The frequently used words are intended to be taught with flexibility of use and to increase sentence structure across the grades. Therefore, students should learn words throughout a variety of contexts. This document is not intended to limit the words students can read and write in a classroom setting but to provide familiar words for assessment purposes.

  • Graphics: The manipulatives are nearly 100% standardized on the 2012-13 NCEXTEND1 assessments. This means that almost all graphics in each answer option is the same across concepts (i.e., if a graphic of a lake is used for an item in science and language arts, it will be the same lake graphic).
