“In the old tests a student would just get a vocabulary word by itself and would be asked to find a synonym. Now you will get that word in a sentence.
“Students will have to read the sentence and be able to find the right answers through context clues. And yes, I said answers plural, there might be more than one correct answer.”—Andrew Latham, Director of Assessment & Standards Development Services, WestEd
