Product Description
This is a ten-page Word document comprising (1) a matching section with ten characters from the Odyssey and twelve character descriptions, (2) a match-the-quote-to-the-character section at the end with seventeen quotes and five characters from the work, and (3) two hundred seventy (yes, 270) A-D multiple-choice questions divided by books 1-24 with the exception of Book 8, which is missing. Some books have four or five questions, most have at least ten. If you are like me, you will cut and paste sections to use as quizzes and then pare down the entire document to semi-reasonable size for a final test. If you have students who merit special attention, I suppose you could make them do the entire thing, but expect at least someone important to be upset. I did number the multiple-choice section in sequence from beginning to end, but it will be easy enough to re-number sections. I also wanted to get up to three digits for spacing purposes. I intentionally used the more conventional Times font (rather than my beloved Palatino) and 0.5" margins to facilitate modification of the document. Font size is a reasonable 9-point throughout with tweaked breaks between questions to eek out more space. I tried to make all the tabs and margins the same, too. I normally charge a nominal amount (to my mind, at least) for my assessments, but in this case the price reflects the effort. What you get is the refinement of several years' teaching The Odyssey. I must admit I have not taught the work in a few years, but when I did, I taught the entire work. Level is aimed at Honors Ninth Grade, but with something as big as this test, it can be used for all sorts of Homeric purposes. Most questions are aimed at literal recall. Many questions ask for very, very specific information, but just as many others are simple reading-check type questions.
