This test is composed of 50 past Regents multiple choice questions covering units 11-15 of my Global History curriculum. It is an outstanding benchmark to determine if your students have mastered units 11-15 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 11 (Tang, Song & Ming Dynasties), Unit 12 (The Mongol Empire), Unit 13 (Ancient Japan), Unit 14 (Mesoamerican Civilizations) and Unit 15 (Global Trade in the Middle Ages)
This quiz also covers, but is not limited to, the following sub-topics: Zheng He, Marco Polo, Ibn Battuta, Genghis Khan, Pax Mongolia, Shinto, Korea, China, Japan, Feudalism, Isolationism, Tokugawa Shogunate, Mayans, Aztecs, Incans, Terrace Farming, Pre-Columbian cultures, South America, Andes Mountains, Bubonic Plague, Black Death, Mediterranean Sea, Italy, Hanseatic League...and much more!
I use this exam as a "midterm" assignment during the first half of the 9th grade spring semester, therefore it would be administered sometime in early April most likely. This exam can also be used as a take-home homework assignment, or as an extra-credit assignment.
