PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is the 1st Semester Exam I give my 7th/8th grade students in United States History (It could be used for high school, though it is very basic). There are 2 parts to the test. The first part is 100 Multiple Choice/Matching Questions. These questions are very basic and to the point, factual based. Since I do 100 questions I like to keep them quick and simple. There are 3 extra questions at the bottom that you could add on that have a map and graph (I sometimes add this on as Extra Credit).

The test covers from Columbus-Pre Civil War (Tubman, etc)

The 2nd part of the test is the written response. There are a total of 8 different prompts. I make my students write on 2 prompts total, but give them 4 options. The 8 writing prompts cover the following topics:
• 3 Branches of Government
• Treatment of Native Americans
• Slavery in the colonies
• Events of the Revolutionary War
• Mexican American War
• Events of Westward Expansion
• 13 colonies
• Fort Sumter, South breaking away and advantages and disadvantages of the South and North.
I make the Multiple Choice worth 50% of the grade and written portion 50% of the grade, but you can do it however you would like.

There is also a 112-question study guide to go along with the test. This study guide matched the questions that the students would see on the test. I always have the students complete this before the test so they are prepared. Depending on time I would either allow them class time or have them do it for homework.
