NGSS Standards Covered:
MS-LS1-1, MS-LS1-2, MS-LS1-3, MS-LS1-4, MS-LS1-5, MS-LS1-6, MS-LS1-7, MS-LS1-8, MS-LS2-1, MS-LS2-2, MS-LS2-3, MS-LS2-4, MS-LS2-5, MS-LS3-1, MS-LS3-2, MS-LS4-1, MS-LS4-2, MS-LS4-3, MS-LS4-4, MS-LS4-5, MS-LS4-6
TEST VERSION 1:
This final and cumulative test hones in on the essential understandings of middle school life science topics. The questions are "big picture" in nature versus details or definitions. The questions include some simple diagrams and charts to analyze, and mimic the way NGSS-based standardized tests generally ask about these topics.
There are 40 questions.
Less copies and easy to correct - save time with our test packet format! This version of the test is designed to have a test question packet (4 pages front/back) and a separate answer sheet (1 page). You only need to make one class set of copies of the test question packet because it can be reused class-to-class. Students ONLY write on their answer sheet.
TEST VERSION 2:
This version of the test is essentially a matching test, so is much simpler than Version 1. There are 3 sections, each of which has its own Word Bank. This test is more a straightforward "definition style" exam. It covers the same topics as listed above. This version has 33 questions.
ANSWER KEYS ARE PROVIDED.
