Even better, they show you how to integrate subjects, whether that’s using a writing lesson to learn about thunderstorms or finding a musical beat during physical education.

All of them are short--students can complete them in about 15 minutes or so. I have found that shorter tests bring certain advantages. Once everyone is finished, papers can be exchanged, checked, and returned for instant feedback. This allows time for students to ask questions about items they missed or to find out why their own answers were incorrect. A second advantage is that all of these tests can be copied one per page--a savings in copier paper. Please note, however, that a few of them DO have a second page. In the very near future, I will be adding several reading tests that are longer--students will need the majority of a standard class period to complete them.

However, these longer tests are more thorough and include a larger scope of reading skills than the shorter tests. Learning TodayLearning Today.
