Unpacked Math Standards  this North Carolina document gives details and examples for each of the content standards and math practices at the 8th grade level.
Kansas Common Core Flipbook for 8th Grade  this "flipbook" from the Kansas Association of Teachers of Mathematics is fantastic! It deeply describes the standards individually and provides sample problems, student misconceptions, and connections to other related standards (progressions).
Collection of 68 Mathematics Tasks  a collection of highquality tasks that align with the approach of the Common Core (thanks to the Albuquerque Public Schools!)  The acronym for the strand (or topic) of each task is described at the bottom of the page.
Illustrative Mathematics  for each of the domains of K8 math, you can click to reveal the common core standards and then click "see illustrations", which provides a list of rich math tasks that cover these concepts. Also gives further details on the Standards for Mathematical Practice.
Inside Mathematics  extensive resource from the Noyce Foundation that provides videos of example lessons from many grade levels (including 8th). There is also a fantastic eighth grade page of resources, which includes math tasks.
NCTM Reasoning and Sense Making Tasks  a collection of indepth, high school level math tasks from NCTM, which would be appropriate for advanced 8th graders
Mathematics Assessment Project  this resource includes lessons, tasks and assessments (formative too) direclty connected to the math standards by grade level. Dig around  it's surprising how much is here, including tasks linked to the math practices.
Balanced Assessment in Mathematics Program  a program out of Harvard that has compiled loads of highquality assessment tasks, K12. Go to the listing of middle school assessments here. There is also a listing of technologybased assessment materials, which typically require spreadsheet software and/or a graphing calculator (they're 712 level).
Kansas Common Core Flipbook for 8th Grade  this "flipbook" from the Kansas Association of Teachers of Mathematics is fantastic! It deeply describes the standards individually and provides sample problems, student misconceptions, and connections to other related standards (progressions).

SECC Videos for Understanding the CCSS in Math in 8th Grade  series of videos designed to clarify the meaning of individual standards by discussing the language of the standard and giving an example problem (has K12 videos available).
Learning Trajectories of the Standards  click on the hexagon image here and you can find the learning trajectories (the standard developed across grade levels) for your students within each of the domains.
Assessment:
Computerbased items released from Smarter Balanced  there have been a set of computerbased items released that you can go through and actually answer online. If you go to the top of the page you can select, "view more sample items" to see a list of sample questions by grade level. You can also select "about this item" at the top to see which specific standards connect to the test item.
