Practice Taking the HSA Teachers can use the mini-assessments on the public release forms to help diagnose student strengths and needs. The mini-assessments are organized by the content standards identified in the table below. Items on the mini-assessments were on previous forms of the actual assessment and have been released to the public to illustrate how content might be assessed. The mini-assessments include a combination of selected response, student produced-response and constructed response items.
English is a West Germanic language that was first spoken in early medieval England and is now the most widely used language in the world. [ 4 ] It is spoken as a first language by the majority populations of several sovereign states , including the United Kingdom , the United States , Canada , Australia , Ireland , New Zealand and a number of Caribbean nations. It is the third-most-common native language in the world, after Mandarin Chinese and Spanish . [ 5 ] It is widely learned as a second language and is an official language of the European Union , many Commonwealth countries and the United Nations , as well as in many world organisations. English arose in the Anglo-Saxon kingdoms of England and what is now southeast Scotland .
The history of English is conventionally, if perhaps too neatly, divided into three periods usually called Old English (or Anglo-Saxon), Middle English, and Modern English. The earliest period begins with the migration of certain Germanic tribes from the continent to Britain in the fifth century A.D. , though no records of their language survive from before the seventh century, and it continues until the end of the eleventh century or a bit later. By that time Latin, Old Norse (the language of the Viking invaders), and especially the Anglo-Norman French of the dominant class after the Norman Conquest in 1066 had begun to have a substantial impact on the lexicon, and the well-developed inflectional system that typifies the grammar of Old English had begun to break down.
