This is a Reading Check Quiz for the first half of Part II of Life of Pi, Chapters 37-52. It is designed merely to identify who has read the assignment, and whether the students are picking up on the main plot and characters. I designed this quiz for a quick assessment that can be done in the beginning of a class period. It should only take the students around 10 minutes to complete it. It consists of eight short-answer (fill-in) questions worth a total of 20 points. I also added two Bonus questions. Students who are reading should be able to answer these basic plot and character questions and is useful for teachers to determine if students are ready for more analytical, symbolic or deeper discussion as well as to identify what students are not keeping up with the reading assignments.
