1 Jackie White Rogers Literacy Consultant Kentucky Department of Education English II End-of-Course Exams

2 While Kentucky requires students to take the QualityCore® EOC exams, the state does not require teachers to use the QualityCore® educator resources. These resources are available to support teachers as they implement the Kentucky Core Academic Standards (KCAS) and their locally-developed curriculum. The QualityCore® resources for English II may provide a useful supplement, but it is NOT a replacement curriculum. EOC English II

14 Cognitive Levels (Depth of Knowledge): LEVEL 1 Support ideas by reference to details in a passage Identify figurative language in a passage Use appropriate grammar, punctuation, capitalization and spelling Recall elements and details of passage structure, such as sequence of events, character, plot and setting

15 Level 1Recall Sample Question The author uses lines 7-13 to create _________. a.Tension b.Suspense c.Tone d.Mood Recall and recognize information such as facts, definitions, terms or procedures. Students are required to demonstrate a rote response or perform a simple procedure. Items at this level require some reasoning.

16 Cognitive Levels (Depth of Knowledge): LEVEL 2 Identify and summarize major events, main ideas and pertinent details Use context clues to determine the meaning of a word Predict a logical outcome based on information in a passage Use organizational strategies to structure written work

17 Level 2 Skill/Concept Sample Question Which literary device helps establish the humorous tone in the story? a.Hyperbole b.Personification c.Metaphor d.Irony Requires mental processing that goes beyond recalling or reproducing an answer.
