This file is a cumulative test over the novel "Where The Red Fern Grows" The cover page shows the main skills that are covered by the questions included. The layout of this test works great to prep your students for the state test. It contains multiple choice questions that use testing vocabulary terms, and it also requires students to answer short response questions in boxes similar to state testing formats. I aligned my questions to the 7th grade Common Core standards; however the questions could apply to a variety of grade levels ranging from 5-8.
Common Core standard skills covered include:
Literary Term: Flashback
Point of view
Short response questions in state format: The ability to recall information directly from the passage with supporting evidence.
After my students take this test, I always check which questions they miss to see which Common Core Standards need to be reinforced for each student individually. Each question hits a specific skill/standard from the cover page.
I hope you enjoy this testing format for your students.
