This is a brief, 7-question quiz on chapter 8 of John Knowles’ A Separate Peace. This quiz covers basic reading comprehension only – details of plot, character, and setting – and requires no literary analysis from students. I use these quizzes to assess reading comprehension before we discuss the chapters. Of the seven questions, four ask for short free responses that will range in length from a single word or phrase to 2-3 sentences, while the remaining three questions are true/false.
Please note that this quiz covers 20 pages of reading.
The answer key provides not only answers but also the page numbers where the answers can be found. All page numbers given refer to the Scribner paperback edition, ISBN# 978-0-7432-5397-0.
Thank you for your interest in my quiz!
