PARCC has posted field test tests.

Sample Questions with Texts and Responses-Change the grade level to access other grade levels.  Also, if you print one of the stories, you may have to print landscape to get a complete text.

Sample Test Questions from NY-There are other grade levels as well as math sample questions on the webpage.
