As an AP Lit teacher and an admirer of the Common Core, I have made a serious study of question design. It's a strange infatuation for me. So, I pulled together questions that I have created over the last few years and organized them into one collection.
There are 100 questions (all in response to fiction or poetry)—all from (included) stories, passages, or poems in the public domain--that ask students to respond to the likes of Shakespeare, Hemingway, Bradstreet, Twain, de Maupassant, Dickinson, Longfellow, Poe, etc.
Questions are not numbered, nor are the answers assigned letters, so you can just pick and choose whatever questions you want and then format your own numbering on your own test. Correct answers are highlighted, so once you create your own test, just remove the highlighting, and you are ready to go.
I uploaded the file as a Word document so you can make changes as you see fit.
I hope you find the questions helpful.
Thank you, Hawk from a Handsaw
