Quality of Assessments: Not Applicable (N/A)

There is not a rubric with this document. However, there is an answer key. It seems that a teacher would have students examine which areas were most difficult to inform intervention and further instruction.

Opportunities for Deeper Learning: Limited (1)

The document is a worksheet to be used with students. I believe a skilled teacher would ask students to give their evidence or support for their answers.
