This pretest is designed to activate prior knowledge for students who struggle with grammar. I have successfully used this pretest with my inclusion students and several other students, allowing them to move forward in grammar while they complete memorization of important concepts. The examples scaffold the understanding of grammar concepts while establishing where students stand on their paths to proficiency in grammar. Examples demonstrate each grammar concept prior to the bank of test questions.
Note: The test questions are identical to those in Identification of Phrases and Clauses Pretest/Posttest
. Please also see the Intro Bundle of Grammar Assessments and Phrase Handout/Poster
. This pretest is part of the bundle.
The test may be given over one class period or divided into sections and given as an introduction to each grammar topic over multiple class periods. May also serve as a posttest.
