This quiz asks students to identify the literary devices being used in different lines of poetry. One question is completed by the teacher to serve as an example. Furthermore, there's one additional question (eleven total), so that students can miss one question and still score a 100. This eleventh question is considered a "freebie." I do not allow students to score over 100, though, if they answer every question correctly.
Part I of the quiz forces students to underline the literary device, and identify the type of device being used next to the question.
Part II consists of multiple-choice questions. Students must choose the correct device being used in the line of poetry.
There are two versions of this quiz, labeled 1 and 2. Teachers may want to edit this out before printing and copying for students, so they are unaware of the different versions. Answer keys are also provided.
Note, this quiz has been designed for use with a poetry unit. However, it may be used independently as literary devices/figurative language practice.
