THE MAN IN THE WATER TEST GUIDELINES

Dear grade 8 students,

As some of you requested, here’s the structure of the test you will have on Tuesday. Please understand these are NOT the questions or answers of the test. They are guidelines for you to know what the exam will look like, your passing or failing depends on how attentive you were in class, your reviewing each others’ replies in the post on GIST, and how you analyze during the test.

Test structure

The test will assess CRITERION A and CRITERION B

PART 1

Questions 1, 2 and 3 are True or False and multiple choice. The choices are the explanations.

For example,

 

(this question won’t appear in the exam)

The Lowest Animal wants to make a change in society.

TRUE X
FALSE
  1. Because Twain uses irony in his text.
  2. Because he compares animals and man.
  3. Because Twain uses satire. Correct answer.
  4. Because Twain did not actually do all the experiments.

PART 2

From the list of statements, you will choose the ones that would go in the corresponding column. Some of them do not belong in any.

For example,

  2. Deals with traveling in time.
  3. Discusses experiments with animals.
  4. Tells the story of a young inventor.

PART 3

You will be given a text with some sentences missing. You will choose from those sentences in random order to complete the text, just like the test on grammar.
