"Fahrenheit 451" Test
This test covers Ray Bradbury's novel "Fahrenheit 451" and is 13 pages with 80 multiple-choice and true-false questions. The questions are mixed up between text-based questions and beyond-the-text analytical questions that require higher order thinking skills.

This test is divided into four parts (20 questions apiece): General Knowledge Questions, “The Hearth and the Salamander, “The Sieve and the Sand,” and “Burning Bright.”

The section on general knowledge contains 20 questions straight from the text, also known as questions within the text. They are factual answers to questions about elements in the novel. These are all multiple-choice questions.

The next three sections have 60 questions total -- 20 per section divided evenly among the three parts of the novel. These sections contain beyond-text and about-the-text questions that require higher order thinking skills, or HOTS.

There are 35 beyond-text questions that deal with making connections, inferring, and synthesizing. There are 25 about-the-text questions that deal with analyzing the writer’s craft and critically thinking about the ideas in the text.

In the final three sections, there are 54 multiple-choice questions and six true-false questions.

The test is written in 2-column format and is 13 pages.

Grade Level
This test is designed to challenge high school students in 11th or 12th grades. For 9th and 10th grades, I would edit the test, reducing the number of questions and/or possibly reducing the number of possible answers to choose from. (The test does come in Word.) However, for a 10th-grade honors or advanced class, I would leave the test as is.

Answer Key
The answer key is written in single column, taking up 20 pages.

The correct answer is in bold for each question, which will make it easy for you to see the questions, all answers to choose from, as well as the correct answers.

Study Guide
There are two study guides for you to choose from that help students prepare for the test, letting students know exactly what they need to know.

Study Guide A, which is 7 pages, allows students to see the specific quotes from the text for which they need to identify figurative language.

Study Guide B, which is 6 pages, does not allow the students to see the specific quotes ahead of time.

You can choose which study guide will work best for your class.

Word and PDF
All documents come in Word and in PDF; therefore, there are 92 total pages.

Since all documents come in Word, you may edit them in any manner you choose.

Test Length
The test should take the average student about 45 to 50 minutes to complete, while students who excel may complete it in 35 to 40 minutes.

ELA-Literacy.RL.8.4, RL.9-10.2, 3, & 9, and RL.11-12.1, 6, and 10.
