The following quiz is a 30-question multiple choice quiz on Tate Taylor's 2011 period drama "The Help" that stars Jessica Chastain, Viola Davis, Bryce Dallas Howard, Allison Janney, Octavia Spencer, and Emma Stone. The quiz can be used in an English, film studies, or media studies class and is not a trivia quiz about the story or production anecdotes; it is also not a simple, low-level comprehension quiz based on events in the film. The quiz contains high level, critical thinking questions on the understanding through evaluation levels of Bloom's revised taxonomy model. The quiz assesses a taker's understanding of the film's acting, character archetypes, characterization, cinematography, conflict, costume design, figurative language, foreshadowing, ideologies, inferences, irony, plot, setting, sound, story, subtext, and symbolism.
