NOT a simple, low-level "assessment" of plot, this test features curriculum-anchored questions to author's style, character archetypes, characterization, connotation, diction, figurative language, flashbacks, foreshadowing, genre, inferences, irony, motifs, the plot diagram, repetition, setting, sociocultural context, symbolism, themes, and tone. The test contains high level, critical thinking questions on the understanding through evaluation levels of Bloom's revised taxonomy model. The test features 34 multiple choice questions on various concepts above applied to Ernest Gaines' novel, A Lesson before Dying. Since each question is worth 3 points, the test totals to 100 points (including a 2-point gimme for students). The test is in-depth but quick and easy to grade. Enjoy!
