How to Write a Quiz for Your English Students
The teacher writes a quiz to see how students fare. Did they get the lesson? What did they learn? Usually, the quiz, like homework evaluates the student’s performance or what was retained in their recall.
When writing a quiz for your English students always keep in mind that they could, at least, make one good sentence. The quiz can either be an objective type or a short essay type.
Give away scores, so the students will get inspired. The quiz must be based on the past lessons and their reserved knowledge.
Here are examples.
Lesson: Parts of Speech
1. You can ask them to identify an italicized word.
By the end of the semester, I will be a good speaker.
Identify by and good. By is a preposition. Good is an adjective.
The connection between grammar rules and writing makes sense.
Identify between and makes. Between is a preposition. Makes is a verb.
2. You can ask them to choose the correct answer.
Joe and (I, myself) attended the annual picnic. I is the correct answer.
After he had (saw/seen) Pope Francis, he began to feel better. Seen is the correct answer.
3. Explain in not more than three sentences.
I’d like to live a poor man who has a lot of money. Pablo Picasso
A fool and his money are soon parted. An English proverb
Lesson: Verb Tense
4. Change the verbs into simple present.
Mother Teresa prayed earnestly. She knew that God called her because of an interior happiness. When she left her congregation, she gave to the poor her little money from her friends. She wore a white sari with a blue line. She said, “I am very happy if you see Jesus Christ in me, as I see in you.”

Above are examples, and there are more ways, as the teacher can write and develop the quiz for the students.
Moreover, an essay quiz will supply enthusiasm. Explaining or narrating a topic in two or three paragraphs will free thoughts and let the teacher know how students relate and remember the lesson.
