    Tony, they're questions that are being field-tested; they're new, and the test company wants to ensure that bugs are eliminated from a question, and get a sense of how hard the question seems to test takers, before springing it on test takers for real.

    I just took the SLLA exam yesterday and not feeling very optimistic. I have studied for months. I found some of the questions to be the same as in practice tests but others were very unfamiliar. There were a few about special education that I did not know which surprised me since I have taken the laws courses. I should have spent more time practicing the extended response questions. I type slowly and do not feel like I wrote enough.

    Welcome to A to Z, and hugs. It's fairly common for people to walk out of a test sure that they fell short, only to find when the score report arrives that they passed.

    The practice test on the ETS website. On test day, place most of your focus on the multiple choice as this is where most of your points will come from. For the written responses, use bullet points, don't write entire paragraphs, get straight to the point, that will give you more time. What state are you taking it for?

    You only need 163. That's the state I was going for.

    Hello everyone... My name is Todd and I am from New Jersey...
    Feeling incredibly bummed out... I took the test today, and failed to finish the constructed response questions... I feel pretty confident about the multiple-choice questions, but I’m almost positive that will be not be enough for me to pass. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated...thank you

    Question for those of you who have taken this test on the constructed response portion. I have read where many of you have said you have just used bullets. Do you bullet a lot or just 3 - 5 bullets since have to move on to next question? How do you study for the CR questions? That portion has me a little worried since I am not sure on how to study this. Appreciate all your help

    how many bullets on average you put down for each of the three parts, going to venture the bullets reinforced the standards
