This is a set of eight reading quizzes on Hawthorne’s The Scarlet Letter. Each quiz covers three chapters, or about 25 pages of reading. These quizzes are meant to take about 5-10 minutes of class time and cover reading comprehension only; they do not require students to do any literary analysis or interpretation. Most of the quizzes blend true/false and free response questions, with more free-response questions than true/false.
Please note that these quizzes do NOT cover the long introductory chapter called “The Custom House,” which is only tangentially related to the rest of the novel.
Each answer key includes not only the answers but also the page numbers on which the answers can be found. All page numbers refer to the Modern Library paperback edition, ISBN# 978-0-679-78338-1.
Thank you for your interest in my quizzes!
