After the first nine weeks of school, I wanted to give my students a benchmark they could easily do in one class period that showed their strengths along with areas we still needed to master. I designed this 18 question quiz in STAAR format to help meet this goal. The day before the quiz I modeled the process with the included 8 question practice quiz. This benchmark provided me with the results I needed to plan future instruction. I have also included a narrative and an expository writing prompt for student use.
