This is a 30 question skills-based test that assesses students knowledge of SOAPSTone and the types of expository writing.
This test asks students to read "One Word of Truth Outweighs the World" by Alexander Solzhenitsyn and answer questions about SOAPStone (Subject, Occasion, Audience, Purpose, Speaker, and Tone).
The second reading is "The Nobel Peace Prize Acceptance Speech" by Elie Weisel, and it also asks questions about SOAPSTone. These sections are both multiple choice.
Then there are questions about the purposes of different types of expository writing, two quotations that assess how well students can identify an author's purpose, and lastly students are asked to identify loaded language within a short quotation.
