This is the test I give at the culmination of my Midwife's Apprentice Unit. It is a multiple-choice exam, which I give on Scantron forms. It goes over all the literary elements and literary devices and techniques that we studied through The Midwife's Apprentice readings and discussions.
This is the test I give my advanced English students, not my regular English students. There is a difference in rigor on these tests. The regular English test has four choices for answers, while the advanced English test has 5 choices for answers. The advanced English test has some different questions as well. Doing my tests this way gives me one more level of differentiation for the advanced English students.
Again, this relates to the California 7th Grade ELA Content Standards, but you can get ideas for creating questions for other pieces of literature based on an examination of the questions on these Unit exams.
