Need a grammar diagnostic test that will give you a clear picture of what students know? Use this assessment as a pre (and/or post) test to get a benchmark and track growth!

This test is TEACHER-friendly because it is easy to grade, fully editable, and assesses all of the grammar topics specified in the CCSS for grades 7-12 (and some of 6th)! The question types are a combination of matching, labeling examples and terms, and identifying errors in sentences.

STUDENTS will benefit from the self-assessment embedded into the pre- and post-assessment pages, AND they’ll like my surprise: a mix of original sentences (by me) and famous quotes from movies, books, and songs. They’ll be singing their way through a test that would otherwise be boring!

**NOTE: This download includes Microsoft Word and PDF documents. If you'd prefer a self-grading Google version, click here.**

This 14-page download includes…

• Teacher’s Guide

• Pre-Test student directions and self-assessment page

• Post-Test student directions and self-assessment page

• Test (100 questions, with 4-9 questions per topic)

• Answer Key

• Optional: test corrections form (to help with growth between tests)

• Bonus: BOTH the editable version AND the ready-to-print PDF are included!

TOPICS ASSESSED include: parts of speech, subject & predicate, complete sentences vs. fragments, run-on sentences, dependent vs. independent clauses, sentence types, direct & indirect objects, active & passive voice, parallel structure, pronouns, subject/verb agreement, verb moods, verbals, modifiers, types of clauses & phrases, semicolons vs. colons, commas, apostrophes, and hyphens/dashes/ellipses.
