This is a 100-question, multiple-choice test for a high school World History course. This test covers the Industrial Revolution, with review questions that cover geography, the Renaissance and Reformation, 19th Century Political Developments, the Age of Discovery, and the World at 1500.
The test is fully alligned to the Virginia Standards of Learning.
An answer key would have been very helpful; I spent about 2-3 hours checking the answers of several of the questions I was unsure about. I spent another two hours rewording some of the answers. I was able to use about 75% of the test and was glad it was a Word document that I could edit. I didn't particularly like the wording of either the question or the answer on the following:
26 ("form" or "consequence"?);
28, 33, 95 were "gimme" questions;
39 ("direct influence" as well as "complete control"),
42 (I thought it was equal opportunity for all countries to trade with Asian nations, or perhaps "Asian nations remaining open to trade with all nations"),
48 (is "natural law" or "dictates of reason" better wording? Answer also neglected the subordination of women, ex post facto, and the restraints placed on judges.),
49 (I never read about the "settling disputes", but about maintaining France as a world power, distributing small states to protect the borders of the great states, violating the ideas of nationalism, and maintaining absolutism or the Ancien Regime),
50 (Emperor Francis "hosted"; Metternich was the leader of Austrian delegates and a powerful presence),
65 (perhaps the "correct" answer is too simplified for my tastes)
68 (I thought the revolutionaries tried to extend the revolution and remove the counterrevolutionaries; perhaps I think the "correct" answer is, again, oversimplified)
73-75 and maybe 76; 86, 87, 89-97, 99, 100 (why are these in a test on the Industrial Revolution? review?)
82 (oversimplified - I'm not sure with these wordings which would be considered the "correct" answer - I rewrote it and departed from the same wordings repeated in 78, 79, and 80)
96 (accuracy of "correct" answer is questionable according to
