Transcript of Keystone Literature Test Breakdown
The test is made up of two "modules." These modules consist of fiction: prose, poetry, drama; and non-fiction: newspaper articles, speeches, historical documents, biography, etc.
Module 1 - Day One - Fiction - 5/17/2018
Module 2 - Day Two - Non-Fiction - 5/18/2018
Modules 1 and 2
There are three passages to read in each module.
23 multiple choice questions per module.
4 constructed response questions per module (writing about the passages you just read).
So total, there are 46 multiple choice questions and 8 constructed response questions to be taken over two days.
Since you have unlimited time on this test, you can continue working on the module that you started that same day until you feel like you are finished.
Underline important ideas as you read. You can make notes in the margin to refer back to later.
Actually try to figure out and "digest" what you are reading . . . don't just skim.
Don't be tricked into just skimming.
Multiple choice questions are worth 1 point, constructed response are 0-3 points. There are a total of 70 points possible. 65% is multiple choice points, 35% is constructed response points

Mistakes seem to occur when students don't refer back to the text. The text is your best resource!
