Dear English Teacher,
Thank you for taking part in the Blue Book Exam program. Enclosed, you will find four sets of exams (11 exams
total), as well as scoring keys and rubrics, in both hard-copy and CD format.
This series is designed for a variety of uses. You can administer a series of quizzes as your class progresses through
the text. Or, you might want to divide the text in half and give two exams. Some teachers also like to combine their
favorite questions in a single, end-of-unit test. However you choose to use the Blue Book series, you’ll have pre-
written exams for years to come!
Section 1 begins with a set of three Comprehension exams that test for factual knowledge of the beginning of the
book—mostly plot, character, and setting. These multiple-choice exams are appropriate for anyone who has finished
the first quarter of the text.
Next, you’ll find three Interpretation exams that begin to assess critical thinking and literary concepts dealt with
in the book. This section covers the first half of the text. Each test contains a combination of five multiple-choice,
matching, or complete-the-sentence questions, and five short-answer questions.
In Section 3, you will find three Analysis exams that test students’ knowledge of the first three-quarters of the book
in a combination of five short-answer and five short-essay questions. These questions challenge students to evaluate
major themes and symbols as they near the end of the novel or play.
Finally, the two Mastery exams require a reasoned analysis of the complete text. These seven thought-provoking
essay questions will assess your students’ ability to analyze and dissect the text as a whole, identifying and
discussing its overarching concepts and themes.
Thank you for inviting your students to take part in this challenge, and good luck!
