Independent Reading Assessments

I'm a seventh grade L.A. teacher and I find it hard to assess independent reading. I want to give them an assessment, but I want them to be easy to grade at the same time! Any ideas?

In the past, I've had the students choose a book. Then, based on what our curriculum dictates, I make the kids respond using their various books.

Find 10 new vocabulary words that are in your book, write the page #, Copy the sentence properly (this is good for teaching the correct usage of quotation marks and plagiarism),and using context clues Define the word. Check in a dictionary.

Find 5 figures of speech

Character analysis: Choose a character and discuss the traits, draw a picture of character and decorate...

I've had as many as 3 literature circles at once. Three groups with 3 different novels!

Then, depending on your time, I make the students make a Trivial Pursuit type game based on their novel as a closing assessment. Each class can trade with other classes games and play to learn!

I hope this helps.
