This is the actual standardized test given in CA K-12.  Sadly not a joke.  Try a practice here: http://sbac.portal.airast.org/practice-test/
This spring, tests developed by the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium will be administered to well over 10 million students in 17 states to determine their proficiency on the Common Core Standards for Mathematics. If the results are disappointing, who should shoulder the blame—the students,

James Baker was pedaling to work along a slick, snow-covered road in Frederick County, Md., when a traffic light changed abruptly. He braked and skidded to the ground, unhurt but making a mess of his clothes before a long day of work and school. He was on his bicycle that snowy morning last ...
