1) Assign sections of the study guide over the course of a couple weeks.

2) Consider allowing students to omit any 10 questions should you worry that the test length is too long.

NEW! An editable version of the test is now included so you can easily make multiple versions or customize to fit your needs! PowerPoint and Equation Editor (usually built in to PowerPoint) are required to edit this file. If your Equation Editor is incompatible with mine, simply delete my equation and insert your own.

This resource is included in the following bundle(s):
