This is a set of text-based assessments that I use to assess my students’ knowledge of nonfiction skills. The variety of passages and text complexity levels allows you to retest students as needed and make accommodations for struggling readers. Each assessment includes a reading passage, and 10 multiple choice questions or 7 multiple-choice questions and a short written response. To see samples of the assessments, click on the green "preview" button above.
The passages include autobiographies and biographies of literary and historical figures as well as other science and history topics.
The skills and terms covered include: main idea, supporting details, evidence, purpose, audience, fact, opinion, subjective, objective, cause and effect, compare and contrast, paraphrasing, synthesizing, and primary and secondary sources.
