These fifteen vocabulary tests are aligned to the Sadlier-Oxford Vocabulary Workshop Level D (Enriched Edition). The workbook itself does a great job of introducing high-level, highly useable vocabulary and providing students with plenty of practice opportunities, but their computer-generated tests leave a lot to be desired in the realm of rigor and relevance. Instead of just asking students to memorize definitions that they will soon forget, these tests require students to locate context clues in the test sentences and apply their knowledge of both the word’s denotative and connotative meanings as well as its grammatical function. This is reading and applying new vocabulary for authentic purposes, not a superficial memory test. Along with active instruction and plenty of practice, these tests will help ensure that each unit’s words are much more likely to become firmly fixed in students’ working vocabulary. Up your game and get your students ready for high-stakes testing with these rigorous assessments.
