It is so hard to find a basic, close reading test that simply shows whether students did their outside-of-class reading! There seems to be an abundance of Accelerated-Reader (type) tests available for the lower grades...but not for the secondary level. Thus, I have turned to making my own in order to meet my needs (detailed + easy to grade).
I've created two multiple-choice tests (Part One & Part Two, purchased separately) to serve this purpose. Each test is 40 questions in length. To make a teacher's job easier, I've also included an answer key that includes the page number of the correct answer so you can defend the question to those GT/AP students who like to argue over every question on a test! :D
I have already tested these in my own classroom (9th graders) and found the tests to be valid and an accurate assessment of whether students read the novel. From the mouths of one of my students, "As long as you read the book, it's easy...if you didn't read it, you're screwed!"
If you like the first, FREE test (Part One,) you can purchase the other half (Part Two) separately. Simple search for the title "To Kill A Mockingbird Close Reading Test, Part Two (of two)...or click this link: Part II Test
