Product Description
This is a 10-question, multiple choice quiz on L.8.2a Use punctuation (comma, ellipsis, dash) to indicate a pause or break.

This quiz is similar to ACT practice quizzes I've made, and it practices the skills required, but I technically focused more on WHETHER or not a pause was required rather than EXACT pause punctuation. That's because, even English teachers have trouble telling between double-dashes or double-commas, or where a ellipsis might fit better than a dash. Because I was using a text about events leading to the War of 1812, I felt like I had fewer options than someone writing about Chuck eating an ice cream cone, so I made the quiz possibly a bit more simple than you want. That said, students will still mess up BECAUSE it focuses on when a pause is needed, and the wrong answers are all places in the sentence I have seen students misplace punctuation.

10 question, A-D. The first three are to identify specific punctuation. Then, it's seven more questions just asking where some pause should exist. Maybe a good quiz to see where students are in regards to pauses even before you teach about the punctuation. I'm sure you'll see that they need as much practice with where the pauses exist as with the punctuation to use.

This is a solid assessment of the Common Core skills that can be used by 8th grade students who are also learning about early American history (War of 1812), but it's just as useful to students in higher grades who should already have the skills, as well as homeschooled children who need to make sure their skills match those required by the Common Core.
