Test Blueprints for English 3, English 3 Honors, and English 4 Honors Final Exams

Teacher committees were put together to create test blueprints for English 3, English 3 Honors, and English 4 Honors. To download an Excel file these blueprints, click here.

These blueprints were created by scanning the standards trace provided to us by HMH and determining which standards were taught and assessed the most throughout the entire school year. These standards - called our "power standards" - were chosen to be assessed. They are highlighted in bold text on the blueprints.

This blueprint will serve as a guide for you to create a final exam for your class. It is a design for a standards-based test, so there is no specific content mentioned. That is up to the discretion of the creators of the assessment.
