Not your grandma's "did you read" multiple choice quiz! In fact, I often let students use their books on my quizzes (shocking, I know). The goal here is not to (just) test memory and comprehension. I try to make my multiple choice quizzes as useful as possible; in turn, while some questions are more plot-based, many questions ask students to infer and analyze as well. Questions keep in mind CCSS and use stems similar to those students may see on ACT, SAT, and AP style tests. In particular, my Macbeth quizzes focus on analyzing how complex characters develop, identifying and analyzing main ideas and supporting details, and citing evidence to support conclusions. I also try to highlight moments of the play that I want to revisit and discuss. I used this particular assessment with my sophomores, but I included a word document copy in this file, so you can edit for the needs of your students.
This is a shortened version of my Act I and II quiz. If you like it, please consider buying my Macbeth quiz bundle!
