It is important that you know the following words and the explanations for the markings according to the rules. If you do not know the answers then you need to review FIRST before you give this test to your student. His or her responses will be considered correct or incorrect according to your advance study. You will be the one to grade this test and determine if your student has gained the necessary knowledge.

You will want to give this test in parts, not all at one time. You should take a week to complete this test.

Dictate the following words to your students and tell them to mark the words

as they write them. After each word is marked, one at a time, have your students

read their words back to you and explain the reason for their markings.
