This is a 20-question multiple-choice test on Tim O'Brien's The Things They Carried.
This test is designed for high school students who have learned some close reading skills, and it avoids questions that can be answered easily from SparkNotes and other literature summary sites.
I used this test and others like it to quiz students on their summer reading and extra-credit reading.
Answer sheet (for students) and answer key are provided. If you like this test, please note that I have several others available and will be adding new ones on an ongoing basis.
Please note: this test covers a contemporary novel that may deal with some adult themes or include adult language. I used these tests in 10th-12th grade classes at a relatively liberal school. Before assigning this text, please make sure it is appropriate for your student population. Please email me if you have questions – I would be happy to guide you in this area.
