Creating MAZE Passage zSelect a passage from the students curriculum zDelete every seventh word and create two distractor words as choices zIf the seventh word is a name, skip that choice and proceed to the next word. zMake sure that all the choices fit on the same line zGive students 1-3 minutes to complete the maze passage.

Scoring MAZE Passages zScore as incorrect xAny items that are skipped (no choice is made) xAny items where two answers are circled xAny items where the students choice cannot be determined zMark a line through any incorrect choice that the student has made. zCount the number of correct maze choices to obtain the student score. zIf a student makes three consecutive errors, stop scoring. xReturn to the last correctly chosen word xCount the number of correct maze choices including and before the last correctly chosen word. Do not count any choices made after the last correctly chosen word.
