The movie version of The Giver followed the book in most areas. Because of this some students might be tempted to just see the movie and not read the book. This 30 question assessment is based on situations that only occurred in the book or the situations which only are addressed in the book so only those students who read the book can pass this test. This assessment is not designed as a thorough assessment of the major themes in the book. It's just one way to keep kids honest. I've also included an answer key which will show you which answers would be given if a student only saw the movie.
