Geography Test for Assessment
Montessori Geography Test. 2 tests for 6-12 Montessori students to assess knowledge of cultural geography and physical geography.
This test can be given to fluent readers in a 6-9 Montessori class.
It will help you quickly assess next learning steps and lessons. There are 2 tests, cultural geography and physical geography. In total 11 pages. (2 Marking rubrics are also included 3 pages in total)
I have done these tests with my class. It takes between 20min to 1 hour per test dependent on child. If needed I read the questions to the students and write down their answers!
