### TEST ITEM SPECIFICATIONS

• Reporting Category: Geometry and Measurement
• Item Type(s): This benchmark will be assessed using: MC item(s)
N/A
• Clarification :

Students will identify the ordered pair that describes the location of a point on a coordinate plane.

Students will identify the point on a coordinate plane that corresponds to a given ordered pair.

Students may identify the location of a point on a coordinate plane that is equidistant from two points.

Items will not include finding a specific distance between points.

Students will describe the horizontal and vertical movements necessary to get from one point to another on a coordinate plane.

• Content Limits :
Items may include the following terms: coordinates, coordinate plane, ordered pairs, midpoint, x-axis and y-axis, but items will not assess the vocabulary of these terms.
• Stimulus Attributes :

All x- and y-coordinates must be whole numbers.

Coordinate grids may have the x- and y-axes labeled.

Coordinate grids may have arrows at the end of each axis.

Items including the use of compass directions must include a compass rose.

All coordinate grids must use a scale of one unit.

Items may be set in either a real-world or a mathematical context.

Graphics should be used in all these items.
