Here is a challenging summative assessment for the novel The Awakening by Kate Chopin. Requiring close reading of the book, the test includes three sections: character and quote matching, true and false statements, and a short essay (prose constructed response). A key is provided for the first two sections of the assessment, and evaluation criteria are included for the short essay. If students simply read SparkNotes, they will not be able to pass this test. Please provide fair feedback if you download and use this test.
