Product Description
Gauge your students’ ability to answer questions and construct responses with three short, age-appropriate stories and corresponding reading questions. You can use them as formative assessment, summative assessment, or reading test prep. (Student copies are not marked as assessments, allowing you to use them anytime for any purpose.)

Stories include “The North Wind and the Sun,” “The Rats and Their Son-in-Law,” and “The Talkative Tortoise.”

For each story, four options are now included. Each poses seven questions and includes a corresponding rubric.
• Longer with CCSS – This five-page test includes a one-page story, three pages of questions (six requiring longer responses), and a rubric. Common Core State Standards appear for each question, as well as on the rubric.
• Longer without CCSS – This five-page test also includes a one-page story, three pages of questions (six requiring longer responses), and a rubric. No standards are listed.
• Shorter with CCSS – This four-page test includes a one-page story, two pages of questions (three requiring longer responses), and a rubric. Common Core Standards appear for each question, as well as on the rubric.
• Shorter without CCSS – This four-page test also included a one-page story, three pages of questions (three requiring longer responses), and a rubric. No standards are listed.
