The Great Gatsby Final Test
This test has the following types of questions: 25 multiple choice (worth 2 points each), 15 true/false (worth 2 points each), and 2 short essay (worth 10 points each).
There are 2 different versions – same test, but the answer choices for the multiple choice and the true/false questions are rearranged so that the answers are all different between the two tests. Cheaters don’t stand a chance!
If you want to use Scantron-style scoring sheets, the test is set up to accommodate that. Students will just need to write their answers to the short essay on a sheet of paper for you to score the written portion, but the scanner can score the rest. Be sure to remind students that A = True and B = False when using a bubble sheet.
This test also comes with an editable PowerPoint if you wish to change any questions or add questions. If you do not want to have any short essay, you can simply leave off the last page of the test. See a few sample questions below:
