This product is a 45 minute multiple choice quiz designed to test the skills of students at interpreting and applying English grammar rules in context. 5 very different texts are provided with 6 questions on each. I do this for my year 11 and 12 students as a way to prepare them for grammar questions in their exams. This way they get a sense of how solid their foundation knowledge is with regard to the structure of sentences, the function of the parts of speech, rules governing punctuation as well as their ability to switch between registers and understand how different writing styles work to convey a writer's intention. The multiple choice test offers opportunities for students to recognize a well formulated response to a problem. This test can therefore also be regarded as a learning tool for revision purposes or could also be used as a diagnostic exercise to establish language competency. It could also simply be a useful quick test to complete a section on English grammar. The product includes a blank on which students fill in their choices, a teacher memorandum with recommended answers and a quick marking guide.
