This is a great story that will appeal to our ZOMBIE-obsessed youth!
Are you struggling to alter your assessments to help your students get ready for the end-of-the-year standardized test? I adapted this quiz to be more like the new Virginia SOL Reading Test with technology enhanced items (TEI), but it should work well for any state standardized test.
No longer can we ask students to demonstrate simple comprehension of a story. In this ten (10) question quiz, I ask students to make an inference, then use textual evidence to defend how they came to that inference. Students use context clues to define words they've likely never seen before. Some questions have one answer, while other questions have multiple correct answers. The format of the quiz is in a table to provide an experience closer to the online, one question at a time format of a standardized test.
I am providing the quiz in Word format, so you may edit to suit your needs. The answer key is provided.
