To test students' understanding of Arthur Miller's play, The Crucible, students must discuss five of the six quotations provided on this exam (editable Word document, change to six of six (etc.) if necessary).
Two versions of this test are provided! (12 quotations to choose from if you want to give out just one version.)
Students must identify who said the quotation, in what context (brief summary of what happened shortly before and after this quotation), and the significance of the quotation. This identifies whether or not the students read the play, but also their understanding of important themes discussed in class.
When I have students answer 5 quotations, I make each quote 20 points total (4 for who said it, 4 for when was it said, and 12 for significance).
The key answers who said the quote and when it was said. It does not include the significance as answers will vary depending on what themes/ideas you cover in class.
