I searched high and low for a basic, close reading test that would simply show me whether students did their outside-of-class reading for OF MICE AND MEN, and I found that none existed that met my needs (detailed + easy to grade). I was not striving for higher order thinking...just a basic, Accelerated-Reader-type quiz that would demonstrate completion of the assigned reading. The higher order thinking questions come out after my students have completed the reading--through Socratic Seminar. Thus, this is basic, but it serves a specific purpose of student accountability.
I've created three 25-question, multiple-choice tests (Parts I, II, & III) to serve this purpose. To make a teacher's job easier, I've also included an answer key that includes page numbers beside each correct answer so you can be prepared to defend the answer with those GT students who question everything. :) Part I is a free product so you can gauge whether this will work for you.
I hope this will provide you with a clear-cut snapshot of whether your students completed their assigned reading in order to lead into great discussions and analysis!
