The assessment resources include:
Chapter Mini-Quizzes: The 20 chapter mini-quizzes assess students’ understanding of each reading. Each quiz asks three questions related to the events of each chapter. The quiz can be used at the end of class or if assigning reading for homework, can assess whether or not students did, in fact, complete their work. An answer key is included.
Comprehension and Literary Quizzes: The 2 comprehension and literary quizzes assess students on on the events, characters, and details of the novel. For every ten chapters of the novel, the quizzes include a variety of question types including: sequence of events, true/false, fill-in-the-blank, multiple-choice, and short answer questions. Answer keys for each quiz are included.
Final Test: The final test asks students to apply the various literary skills they’ve developed over the course of a novel study. Each question is aligned to a specific skill and, in turn, a specific Common Core State Standard. The first part of the test is a character quote matching section. The second part contains 15 multiple choice questions, and the final part asks 7 short answer questions requiring a written response. An answer key is included.
Essays: This resource contains five different essay questions. The questions are aligned to literary skills and are also Common Core aligned. Suggestions for answers/topics are included.
Final Reflection: On the last day of the unit, students can spend class time reflecting on their experience through the unit reflection questions. The reflection asks specific questions about individual experiences that can then serve as a way to guide future implementation of resources.
Exit Tickets: The forms can serve as a small skills assessment at the end of each lesson. The ticket has room for a question-of-the-day as well as an effort rating.
