Product Description
This pack includes differentiated tests that assess standards covering craft and structure. Each standard has twelve individual assessments (6 fiction and 6 nonfiction), so these are perfect for standards-based grading! I have aligned them with Common Core, but because reading comprehension skills are assessed similarly across the board, you can easily use these even if you don’t use Common Core.

USE THESE for small groups, stations, or differentiated testing!

Many people who use my Better Than Basal sets often ask how to assess after teaching with mentor texts. Rather than assessing on the book, I suggest assessing on the skill to see if they can apply it! This line of assessments is your answer! :)

WHAT'S INCLUDED?

There are twelve texts included in this pack (six fiction and six nonfiction, plus a bonus fiction and bonus nonfiction to use for questions that compare texts). I have written four levels of each text in fiction and nonfiction genres (2nd-5th grade levels), as well as three levels of questions for each standard (3rd-5th grade standards). This is to allow for differentiation for your learners. For instance, if a student is reading on a 3rd grade level in 5th grade, you might still give him the 5th grade questions, but give the 3rd grade passage. This will truly assess if he can perform the skill, not if he can read the passage given. Of course, you don’t have to do this, it is just one of the many options I’ve provided in this pack.

The ways to combine the texts and standards are ENDLESS! Please look at the preview file to see the MANY POSSIBILITIES of ways to MIX AND MATCH these assessments!

I created a variety of long and short passages, as well as questions for each standard for each passage. The questions are not numbered so that you can mix and match them to create a longer test covering the skills you desire, or use them independently. I included the short passages with their grade level appropriate questions on one page, but also on two separate pages so that you may still mix and match the passage levels and questions if you’d like.

Fiction passages included, differentiated for 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades:
The Land of Counterpane (adapted from poem by Robert Louis Stevenson)
Pandora's Box (written by Jivey)
The Nest (written by Jivey) *should be used with Pandora's Box for RL.4.4
The Ant and The Cricket (poem adapted from Aesop's Fables)
The Lion and The Mouse (drama adapted from Aesop's Fables)
The Dog (written by Jivey)**
**bonus- Coming Home (written by Jivey) (different point of view)

Nonfiction passages included, differentiated for 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades:
Underwater Forests (written by Jivey)
Ants: Nature's Gardeners (written by Jivey)
Melissa's Diary (written by Jivey)
Anti-Suffrage for Women (written by Jivey)

Days on The Road (adapted from letter by Sarah Raymond Herndon)**
**bonus- Trip Across The Plains (adapted from letter by James Abbey)

You might also be interested in my Paired Texts! Paired texts meet the demand for more rigorous, complex texts with Common Core- especially these passages that students can use to compare and build knowledge to integrate information and draw conclusions.
