The assessment included two poems with questions about the number of lines, stanzas, the main idea, and rhyming words. The test was multiple choice. The CCSS at this grade level requires students to demonstrate specific knowledge of stanzas and how they relate to each other. Determining the main idea calls for students to see the connection between stanzas.

The poems have been removed due to copyright issues but the questions remain.
