This download is for a set for 4 quizzes and 2 tests for The One and Only Ivan. They are provided in both PDF and Microsoft Word formats. The PDFs retain the intended formatting, but if you want to edit any of the questions, the Word documents are there for you to adjust for your class!
The “A” versions are a bit harder and the “B” versions are a bit easier. I wrote these with particular skills in mind, and formatted them to match my state tests and district benchmarks. That means I used sans serif fonts so that they are easier to read, used more white space on the “B” versions, added more answer choices on the “A” versions, and varied the questions slightly on both tests. If you have a student who qualifies for longer testing times and modified assignments, please use the Word documents to adjust the font size or print one question per page if that will help them concentrate better.
Assessment 1A and 1B
Assessments 2A and 2B
Final Cumulative Assessments A and B
The smaller assessments are 10 questions each (8 multiple choice questions, 2 open-answer questions). The final cumulative test is supposed to resemble a standardized test (16 multiple choice questions, 4 open-answer questions). Only the final cumulative comes with fill-in-the-chart type questions.
Because of the reality of standardized testing, it's important for teachers to provide students opportunities to connect their learning to test practice. These assessments are designed so that students will have practice with standardized formats, BUT always include open-answer questions for the teacher to gauge how well students can demonstrate their knowledge in writing.
See the PREVIEW available for download.
These assessments come bundled in my separate but larger packet called The One and Only Ivan: A Teacher Guide that contains more supplements. Please stop by my store for more resources!
