The Giver Quizzes includes a PDF file with all the quizzes ready to print and an editable PowerPoint in case you wish to make any changes. Also, each quiz comes in 2 versions to deter cheaters. Answer keys are included. I also like to save paper, so some of the quizzes have more than 1 quiz to a page for easy printing.
Chapters1-2: 10 Multiple Choice
Chapters 3-4: 8 Multiple Choice
Chapters 5-8: 10 True/False
Chapters 9-10: 10 short answer
Chapters 11-12: 6 Multiple Choice
Chapters 13-14: 9 True/ False (Chapters 11-14 can be combined for a 15 question quiz)
Chapters 15-18: 10 True/False
Chapters 19-23: 15 True/False
These quiz questions are more recall and comprehension. When students read the material, I like for them to get credit for doing the assignment. Not all students are ready to take a quiz with upper level questions after just reading the chapters once. The final test has more upper level questions on it. Of course, even comprehension is difficult if they don't read!
