Product Description
This 3 page quiz has six parts covering noun phrases, prepositional phrases, participial phrases, gerund phrases, infinitive phrases, and appositive phrases. Each section has a short introduction and then directions for the exercise and a sample. Each part has five sentences for the students to complete.

This is the beginning of the section on gerunds:
Part 4: Gerund Phrases: A gerund phrase comprises a gerund and its modifiers. A gerund is a verb form that functions as a noun. Like the present participle, a gerund ends in –ing, but a present participle is an adjective, and a gerund is a noun. To avoid confusion with these two –ing words, decide how they function in the sentence.
Directions: In the following sentences put parentheses around the gerund phrases, and neatly label each part of speech in the gerund phrase; write the abbreviation for each part of speech above the words in the phrase using the following: ger=gerund; N=noun; art=article; adj=adjective; adv=adverb; prep= preposition; PSN=possessive noun; PSPN=possessive pronoun. An example is done for you.
ger art adj N
Example: (Shielding the soccer ball) gave Jake an advantage over his opponents.

This quiz is comprehensive, and I use it as a "teaching quiz" after we finish my "Phrases Worksheet." We correct this together in class because its inclusive nature would take too long for teacher correction. This is a very good assessment of student mastery/understanding of phrases. A 3 page ANSWER KEY is provided.
