*Includes self-grading Google Forms version!* This final exam for 8th grade reading literature is completely editable (in PPT) so you can customize it for your students or simply print and go from the included PDF version. The final exam includes 84 questions as well as a reading passage. Please see the preview file for the number of each question type as well as actual sample questions.
This final exam was designed to serve two purposes – to assess the various terms, concepts, and skills your students have learned this year (See Parts 1 and 2) as well as assess their ability to answer Common Core Assessment-Style questions (See Parts 3 and 4).
This assessment also aligns directly with my Short Story of the Month Club, Grade 8 Short Story Unit Collection, but you can absolutely use it even if you haven’t used these short story units. You’ll notice that the terms come from mini-lessons included with various stories and the style of questions is the same that they’ve seen monthly on the unit comprehension skills tests.
Because RL.8.7 requires students analyze the extent to which a filmed or live production of a story stays faithful to or departs from the text, I have included a movie clip that must be played for students to answer questions 80-84.
If you do not wish to show the video clip during the final exam, simply omit the last page and only give students the portion of the exam up to question 79.
I have included two versions of this exam to help you differentiate for students with testing modifications.
Version 1: Regular Version
Version 2: Modified Version: no more than 5 options for literary term definitions, and no more than 2 options for multiple choice questions
