After students CLOSE READ a text, they should WRITE about what they’ve read! And if students are going to RESPOND to text, teachers should have a tool to ASSESS their comprehension of the text (aka: close reading ability) and their written responses to the text while also preparing their students for state assessments.
WOW!! Not a problem for us teachers ~ aka superheroes!
“Summative Assessments for Fiction ~ Story Elements; The PQA Quiz” was designed to help you with all THAT ~ quickly and easily!
The 13 DIFFERENTIATED PQA Quizzes in this document will work with your favorite (or district mandated) fictional stories. I know your students will find success with them, and you will find them to be a valuable summative assessment tool for your students.
I created the acronym PQA to improve my students’ understanding of how to begin a written response using part of the question in the answer. Using PQA is excellent basic training for elementary writers and helps students stay focused on the topic while writing in all content areas.
