New Regents Global 10 Stimulus-Based Multiple-Choice, Frameworks 10.4
There are 50 questions on 14 stimuli in this collection in the following categories: 10.4 Imperialism
This product is a stimulus-based multiple-choice assessment in the format of the new New York State Regents examination in Global History and Geography rolling out in 2019.
The format is based on a prototype examination provided by the NYSED and includes updates made to the task models of these questions. These are items such as will appear on part I of the new Global Regents Exam for 54% of the students' score. I am creating these for my students in both Global 9 and 10 because there are no old exams to use for Regents review for this new examination. This constitutes my "capstone" test at the end of every topic through the year. This is a rare and unique product and time consuming to create, so it has been priced accordingly. These take longer for students to do than traditional multiple-choice questions. The Global Regents prototype calls for there to be twenty-eight of these. Judging by my students' work on these, plan on about double the usual testing time (about 1 minute per question instead of 30 seconds).
Stimulus-based multiple-choice questions consist of a document followed by one or more multiple-choice questions. The structure of the questions must conform to one of 18 task models. There are no longer any "stand alone" multiple-choice questions as on Global Regents exams in the past.
The product consists of files in HTML format and there are three main files. The files are named with the framework reference number followed by the suffixes: _key, _ref, and _test. The "_key" is answer key to the test. The "_ref" is the reference sheet where is listed each question's references to framework, task model, and performance level descriptor. The "_test" is a student test that you can print. These files are viewed from a browser and you need to unzip the product before viewing or the images will not show. You can copy and paste these into a word processor to make your own edits to the questions.
You can find copies of the documents in image format in the folders.
The product zip file contains another zip file "upload_to_teacherswebhost.com.zip". This is a special package you can upload at the website TeachersWebHost.com. There you can generate tests and edit the questions using the powerful assessment apps there. It's a great place to organize your test question banks for free. There is a short silent video file showing how to upload the questions to test generators at TeachersWebHost.com. This is a lot easier to use than copy-pasting from one document to another and you can have your students take the tests online so they are auto-scored.
