Test questions can be extremely time-consuming to put together, and teachers need them so frequently. We rely on tests to inform our instruction and track student growth, so the test items need to be well thought-out, clearly worded, and targeted at important skills. This high school ELA writing test can be used as a pre and post assessment to track students' growth, as a practice test, as a research and writing unit test or as part of a larger final exam. I've been using these questions on my final exams for several years; they are teacher-tested, quality, and reliable.
This research and writing skills test consists of 6 pages - 70 multiple choice, true-false, and identification questions about MLA, traits of writing, the writing process, citations, source credibility, plagiarizing, summarizing, paraphrasing, and directly quoting research. It is fully editable in Microsoft Word format so that you can adapt it to your instructional purposes and student needs. The answer key is included, and if you're looking for a writing prompt, recommended links are included - I use ACT/SAT type prompts for my growth and final exam assessments.
With purchase, you will have access to TWO editable versions of this test...one regular and one modified with fewer answers for multiple choice questions. Answer keys are included for both!
Save yourself the time and headache of creating from scratch with these teacher-tested questions that have been tweaked using student feedback and real-time data.
