Information about and Tips for Responding to Open-Ended Questions
Quick Check (Don’t write; just discuss...) How much is each OER worth? How many OER questions are there on the test? What is each question about?
Quick Check Answers How much is each OER worth? 3 points How many OER questions are there on the test? 3 What is each question about? –1 is from the literary selection –1 is from the expository selection –1 is a crossover – it asks you to use both selections in your answer
Example OER responses... Look at the passage called “Breakfast in Virginia” Write the OER question that you will see on the next slide on your paper.
Literary Open-Ended Question: 3. What is the primary conflict in “Breakfast in Virginia”? Explain your answer and support it with evidence from the selection. Underneath the question you have just copied, write a definition of “conflict.” (Remember, during the TAKS test, you can look up definitions of terms, if you need to.)
4. Answer the question. Use the “I Say, It Says” Strategy or (A.C.E.) to plan your response. After you plan, write out your response IN COMPLETE SENTENCES! Make sure you answer the question in your own words and include a quote from the story to support your answer.
Provide one answer and develop it well No “beating around the bush” Answers that seek to explain the deeper meaning of life may end up getting “0.” Don’t go off on a tangent. Make sure you answer the question and provide a quote or reference to the text to support your answer! IMPORTANT!

9. Rate your response Trade your paper with someone nearby you. The grader should score your answer between a 0 and a 3. The grader should use the language you have copied from the rubric to explain your score. Look at the grader’s score. Indicate if you agree/disagree and why
10. Copy the Score 3 example onto your paper I want you to get a feel for what a Score 3 sounds like. Notice it is insightful and well-written. You may actually remember what a Score 3 sounds like if you have written it in your own handwriting.
Watch out for these types of questions: Single Passage How does one character change from beginning to the end of a story? How is a character affected by an event? How does the author’s attitude change over the course of the passage? +
Response to Consider:RG-7 RG-28 vs. RG-29 Mismatches are very common The quote you choose HAS to relate to and support your answer. Let’s look at examples:
This quote from the text does not match the answer!
Last Thoughts You may use the entire box when responding to open-ended questions Quotes are a good thing – always support your answer with a quote! Students need to know how to express themselves creatively as well as concisely WHILE supporting their ideas with evidence
