Here are 17 Chapter-by-Chapter Quizzes for John Wyndham's _The Chrysalids_. I use them to keep readers accountable for their reading; however, the quizzes are also designed to provide a teacher with clear and easily gathered information about how well their students are comprehending the text. They are easy to mark, which allows for quick and clear understanding on which areas of the text need more attention or explaining.
Each quiz is one or two pages long. All have clear answer keys. The questions are primarily multiple-choice, with a few short answer, and the last question to every quiz is a short paragraph response. The questions (in particular the short paragraph questions) were devised with the understanding that some students will turn to online summaries rather than read the novel. Accordingly, the questions asked are not readily found in such summaries.
While there are 59 PDF pages to this product, it would be more accurate to call it 30 pages, I believe, as the other 29 comprise the teacher's Answer Keys.
These quizzes allow students to feel confident in their reading and comprehension, and will give reluctant readers the gentle urge to keep on top of their reading, as well as quickly identify to the teacher those students who are not reading the novel at all (or have significant comprehension issues). Either way, it provides data that you can use to encourage all students to become more successful in the novel study unit.
The duration of my novel study is roughly three weeks, at a little more than a chapter per class. I hope you find these chapter quizzes as useful as I do.
Depending up on the class, and if the pace is faster, I also have a different series of three quizzes that have chapters groupings quizzes (e.g., Chapters 1-5, Chapters 6-10, Chapters 11-16). Three Chrysalids Quizzes (Grouped Chapters)
