I have found that testing students 2 times per unit--or every three chapters, is the best way to assess their understanding of the chapters. I have created tests that are aligned with the History Alive curriculum. They are made up of several types of questions including multiple choice, key terms, short answer (2-3 sentences) and a short essay (1 paragraph). Included is the answer Key.
This test covers the The Golden Age of Athens, Alexander the Great and His Empire, and The Legacy of Ancient Greece.
