This test is composed of 50 past Regents multiple choice questions covering units 1-5 of my Global History curriculum. It is an outstanding benchmark to determine if your students have mastered the first 5 units of the Global History curriculum, because...
The test has a variety of questions, including maps, cartoons, graphs, reading passages, images, and more and the questions are jumbled and out of chronological order, in order to increase the test's difficulty.
Units covers on this test are Unit 1 (Social Sciences), Unit 2 (Neolithic Revolution), Unit 3 (River Valley Civilizations), Unit 4 (Ancient India) and Unit 5 (Ancient China)
This quiz also covers, but is not limited to, the following sub-topics: Geography, Adaptation, Traditional Society/Economy, Migration, Animism, Hammurabi's Code, Egypt, Mesopotamia, Judaism, Monsoons, Caste System, Buddhism, Hinduism, Cultural Diffusion, Silk Road, Confucianism, Daoism...and much more!
I use this exam as a "midterm" assignment during the first half of the 9th grade fall semester, therefore it would be administered sometime in late November most likely. This exam can also be used as a take-home homework assignment, or as an extra-credit assignment.
