Valid/Reliable Assessment Instrument for Algebra 1?

Dear Math Educators,

I plan on conducting a study on various instructional activites for
algebra 1 students. I am looking for an effective and reliable algebra
1 instrument that measures both procedural and conceptual levels of
understanding. I have reviewed problems from the California Assessment Program
in the text Assessing Higher Order Thinking in Mathemathics by Geruld Kulm.
The California instrument contains high quality multiple choice and open
ended questions. I would like to use such a test if it is available.
I would like to give a pre and post test to examine changes in students'algebra
knowledge. If you or your school district are using valid and reliable
test instruments to assess changes in students' conceptual and procedual
knowledge as related to algebra 1 topics, I would appreciate learning on
how to obtain such an instrument. If the NCTM has endorsed any such algebra
assessment instruments they would also be of benefit.
