What Do We Mean When We Say Test-Aligned?

Our curriculum team studies all of the standards and competencies for the Praxis®️ Algebra 1 (5162) exam and cross-references them with the current and previous questions released by the official testing company. We then work with content and teaching experts to distill down what test-takers need to know. No matter where you are in the study guide, you can always see how the concept you are learning is aligned to the test standards.
