How do you format your tests and quizzes for your class? I'm curious as to how everyone chooses to do so (especially History Teachers between different levels). For my classes.... Honors: Quizzes: 10 questions total. 2 or 3 multiple choice, the rest are short answer and/or identifications with primary sources in the mix. Tests: AP Style Multiple Choice (30 or so) and 4 (large paragraph length) short answers. AP: Quizzes: 15 Questions Total. 7-8 AP style multiple choice, the rest are a mix of short answer and identifications. Tests: 35 Minute Essay (Choose 1 of 3 unannounced topics) and 30 multiple choice. CP: Quizzes: 5 fill-in the banks (with a word bank, but with some extra words), 5 multiple choice, and then one short answer. Tests: 10 fill-ins, 15 multiple choice, 10 true/false, 10 matching, and three-four short answers (a few sentences each). As you an see my honors kids have much more writing, but I throw in multiple choice to prepare them for AP. My non-AP students write an in-class essay for each unit as part of a department wide program.
