Each quiz contains:
3 multiple choice questions
1 written response question
Quizzes are written to match the level of rigor required by CCSS while not being too confusing for students.
The questions assess many CCSS-ELA standards and elements of nonfiction, including vocabulary, cause and effect, citing evidence, summarizing, sequence of events, comparing and contrasting, and much more.

Note: The preview download will have watermarks and only shows one set of texts about Steph Curry and Kobe Bryant. Your actual product download will not have watermarks.

Please remember, this purchase is for the use of one teacher. It is not intended to be shared. Please purchase an additional license for each teacher if more than one teacher will be using it.
