This stimulus based multiple choice exam is very similar to the style fo questions from an AP test or the SAT. Students must apply their historical and reading skills to come up with an answer. I often let my students use their notes on these tests. There is a
Document-Based Question for the written portion of the class. Students will briefly analyze each document for the subject, context, audience, purpose, who the speaker was. They will then apply the document in a larger context with the essay question that is posed in the test.
