This EDITABLE 9th / 10th grade English Language Arts Final Exam includes both essay and multiple choice questions. Use as a pre-test, question bank, final exam, and/or for review. This exam includes reading selections, literary terms, essay questions, grading rubric, and answer key with Common Core in mind.
Ready-to-use, but customizable! This final exam is written with skills in mind. The multiple choice questions are about skills rather than specific literature. This means that this final exam is ready to use by anyone!
Questions are about: story structure terms, character terms, figurative language, reading skills comprehension, vocabulary in context, basic sentence structure and more.
The test contains an example student essay that test-takers evaluate. This exam also has a short passage about irony.
There is an essay assignment with three essay choices (usually sold separately). Topic choices on the essay exam include one question about story structure, one question about theme, and one question about heroes from class readings. But, once again - no specific literature is mentioned. Questions ask for essay specifics, but topics are general enough for any English classroom.
The essay includes a rubric that students will see on the handout. Students can't complain that they didn't know the requirements when the rubric is on the assignment handout. Have students staple this to their essay for easy grading on your part. Just fill out the rubric and add up the points or assign your own point value.
COMPLETELY EDITABLE. You can add, change, or reorder this well-formatted Word Document. You can customize by adding your own literature specific questions, character matching, extra reading passages, etc. You could also simply PRINT and USE.
One idea you might try is giving the essay and multiple choice separately so that students can complete these performance tasks one at a time.
English teachers spend so much time grading! But this final is easy to grade. For the essay assignment simply fill out the rubric. For the multiple choice - use a scantron or other electronic grading system. Use the answer key (included) and enter your grades. Easy!
This Final Exam has been previously administrator approved multiple times. Answer key and rubric shows administrators that you are organized and have thought things through. For your privacy and convenience the copyright has been removed.
