This is a brief, 7-question quiz on chapters 16-17 of Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World. 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, one asks the students to fill in a blank in a sentence with a specific word from the novel, and the remaining two questions are true/false.
Please note that this quiz covers 23 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 Harper Perennial Paperback edition, ISBN # 978-0-06-085052-4.
