This formative assessment allows the 8-10th grade English teacher to assess students' ability to identify action and linking verbs and tell the difference between the two.
The multiple-choice format is ideal for quick grading and data-tracking. I use GradeCam answer sheets for this quiz. This allows me to see at a glance which type of verbs and sentence structures confuse my students.
This quiz is short, well-formatted, and clear enough to not need modifying for inclusion classes. The vocabulary and sentence structure, however, add rigor.
