This assessment focuses on the reading literature and reading informational common core standards. Students will read 3 texts and answer 5 questions for each text. The first is a biography of Langston Hughes, the second is "Thank You Ma'am" by Langston Hughes, and the third is "Mother to Son" also by Langston Hughes. Each question is aligned to a standard and will assess students' ability to read and understand both informational and literature texts. We used this for our 7th grade final, but it could be used for older and younger students. Answer key is included.
