This is a poetry vocabulary quiz. This quiz works great as a pretest and/or posttest. The quiz has 30 questions. Students are required to write the correct term next to the definition (answer choice box is included.) There are 18 vocabulary words included, there is also a poem at the end of the test where the students will identify examples of many of these words.
The way this is used in my classroom is as a pretest/posttest. Before the unit, I test student knowledge of fiction vocabulary. This helps me know what I need to go over in-depth with the whole class or with small groups. I then use the same test at the end of the unit as a summative assessment.
The vocabulary terms included are: Line, stanza, poet, end rhyme, internal rhyme, rhyme scheme, repetition, speaker, simile, metaphor, personification, hyperbole, alliteration, onomatopoeia, imagery, narrative poetry, lyric poetry and free verse.
An answer key is provided with purchase.
