This is a reading assessment that is a supplement to the Curriculum Associates story "Soldiers, Sleds, and Sam". The main skill assessed in this assessment is comparing and contrasting multiple settings in a story. There are also additional skills assessed including figurative language, comprehension, and vocabulary. Students are also required to complete an extended response question. This assessment has been modeled after the new common core assessment questions. This is a great tool to assess your students' understanding of the skill, while getting them used to the new types of questions they will encounter on standardized tests.
The reading passage is not included with this download, but it can be found by searching the web for the title. This assessment would be appropriate without the Curriculum Associates materials if you downloaded the passage.
