Teacher-made Test Items in American History: Emphasis Junior High School. Bulletin Number 40.
Designed originally for use in junior-high-school classes, this bulletin provides an extensive file of 420 multiple-choice test questions in American history. The test items are intended to measure substantive understandings as well as such abilities as interpretation, analysis, synthesis, evaluation, and application. The initial questions were solicited from approximately 60 classroom teachers and are divided into four levels of difficulty. Arranged chronologically, the questions cover the following subject areas: European background and exploration; colonization and colonial life; the French and Indian War and the American Revolution; the Articles of Confederation and the Constitution; Federalist and Republican administrations to 1812, the Monroe Doctrine, and the Jackson Era; westward movement and sectionalism; the Civil War and Reconstruction; foreign affairs since 1865; and domestic affairs since 1865.
