Grammar Quizzes

Posted 16 November, 2017 by Alicia in Grammar + Syntax, Quizzes / 0 Comments  

I love grammar quizzes. I usually know most of the answers, but there are always at least a few that I get wrong and it becomes a teaching moment. I will likely create my own in the future, but for now, here are a few websites on which you can find a good collection!

1. SoftSchools.com

Link

Difficulty level: Easy-Medium

Good quizzes to take:

Upsides:

  • Great variety and number of quizzes
  • Quizzes are a good length
  • Allows you to review your answers upon completion

Downsides:

  • Design is very old
  • They don’t highlight the word they want you to focus on, which means you could focus on the wrong one and get wrong answers
  • They don’t tell you whether you were right or wrong directly after each question
  • No explanation of answer

2. Cengage

Link

Difficulty level: Easy

Good quizzes to take:

Upsides:

  • Decent design
  • Questions really make you stop and think
  • Feels like an official test (like one you would take in a class)
  • Short quizzes

Downsides:

  • No explanation of answer
  • Answers only given at the end

3. Syntaxis

Link

Difficulty level: Hard

Although this is just one short quiz, it’s very good. I actually got a question wrong!

Upsides:

  • Questions are very clear
  • Design is attractive
  • Explanations of answers are extremely helpful

Downsides:

  • Explanations are provided at the very end instead of after each question
  • It’s short

Note: My method for choosing good quizzes consisted of clicking on interesting-looking quizzes and taking them until I came up with three decent ones. There may be better ones; I encourage you to try many of them until you learn something!

If you do take some of these, tell me how you did in the comments! I’ll tell you how I did in return. (: Don’t forget to link to any better quizzes you find.
