Product Description
This is a teacher made assessment, 10 questions long, for the story Arctic Explorer. This assessment requires students to make inferences, draw conclusions, identify genres, analyze characters, identify metaphors and/or similes, analyze word usage at a higher level of critical thinking than the story assessments provided by the publisher with the text book. I have prepared an assessment for each story, 10 questions long (with the exception of the 2 page stories where the assessments are only 5 questions long), that will require students to make inferences and analyze the stories at a deeper level than the publisher assessments require. These tests will better prepare your students for both the Unit Assessments and the CST in May. These tests more accurately assess your students' reading comprehension levels, strengths and weaknesses, as well as teach them terms such as metaphor and simile by repetition. These tests expose the students to standardized test question formats as available on the Internet. A few of the test questions are purposely ambiguous so that students must find the "best answer" and can argue that the answer they chose is correct.
