About This Lesson

I created this short 30-minute verbal exam and 45-minute writing diagnostic to assess my beginner and intermediate High School and Middle School English Language learners. Since this test is relatively straightforward, it can be used as an evaluative tool at the beginning of the school year to gauge what your students know and don’t know about basic English grammar, usage, and writing ability.

Included in this Educational Download:

  • Short Formative Assessment
  • 47 Questions
  • Verb Tense Questions
  • English Grammar and Spelling
  • Synonym/Antonym Questions
  • Prepositions
  • 1 Reading Comprehension Section
  • Includes Answer Key

This test is also helpful as a practice test!
