This short quiz contains 10 significant quotes from characters in Act I. Students are asked to identify which character says each quote and spell that character's name correctly.
The file includes four versions of the quiz: two without a character bank and two with one. It also includes an answer key. When I administer this type of quiz to my students, I give them one point for correctly identifying the character and a second point for spelling his or her name correctly.
Although relatively simple in format, this type of quiz allows me to answer two primary questions about my students' skills:
(1) Can they comprehend Shakespeare's language well enough to understand the basic meaning within each quote?
(2) Do they understand the plot and characters in this act well enough to know which one of them would make this statement?
