The statements included in this assessment are from the middle to high end of complexity of the Ohio Social Studies Extended Standards 6-8 strand
As this assessment is designed for students with significant cognitive disabilities, you will need to read each statement to them and also allow extended wait time for them to circle their response.
This strand assessment can be used as an introduction to the content that will be covered throughout the year in a Social Studies extended standards class by working through each statement together.
It maybe used as a pretest before explaining the Social Studies strands.
I have also used this assessment at the end of the week long discussion of each of the individual strands to determine if the students have generalized the material or are able to use their notes to answer the questions.
