This is the exam I use for my Secret Life of Bees unit. It is 40 multiple-choice questions with matching characters, plot questions, reading comprehension, and true or false questions based on vocabulary from the novel. In addition, there are two different questions for a 10-sentence paragraph, and the students write based on a theme with three quotes that are supplied on the test. I make two sets of tests to alternate the paragraph question for different classes. My students finish the test in about 35-40 minutes. They usually take the entire period. I've included an answer key for the multiple-choice questions, but not the paragraph - with I have count for 10 points for a total of 50 points for the test.
