This file includes all 7 of my updated social studies unit tests. These tests have been realigned and updated to match the new Georgia Standards of Excellence. I developed these tests over the past nine years teaching 5th grade students and coaching teachers in social studies instruction. I currently teach at a Title I school and have had tremendous success using these tests. Obviously, the tests themselves do not solely account for student success, but any student who can successfully master the material on these tests and explain their reasoning, truly has a deep understanding of the 5th grade Georgia Social Studies standards. The tests include a variety of question types including multiple choice, short answer, matching, multiple answer and essay (the types of questions vary with each test).
These tests contain many of the same questions as my previous version. However, they have new content to match the new standards, and some content has been removed because the standards no longer exist. Additionally, some of the government standards have changed units, as the units they were previously grouped with are now 4th grade standards.
These tests are based specifically on the content that is covered in the new 5th Grade Georgia Standards of Excellence. The content may be applicable to other states' standards as well, but some questions will be very specific to Georgia's standards.
