Use this assessment at the beginning or end of your story writing or story element (plot, setting, etc.) unit. This assessment includes multiple choice questions, short answer, fill in the blank, and constructed response.
It covers the topics of: setting, plot, character traits, elaboration, word choice, and story openers.
Great for 3rd-6th grade.
Before I start my unit I ask my students to create a concept map of everything they know about stories, this assessment includes a page to draw the map once again after they have completed the unit. They LOVE comparing their two maps, before and after the unit, to see how much they have learned!
