*Diagnostic Test*

One of the things we will be spending time with early on is the Diagnostic Test. This test can help you assess your proficiency with grammar. It will also help me determine where the common issues are and help me customize what we focus on during class discussion.

The format of the test is multiple choice. You should choose the incorrect example out of the four provided for each question. Of course, while this is not a graded exercise, it should still be a pretty useful.

Make sure you have taken the test by 10:00pm on Monday, October 10th. Print out a copy of the test and your answers before you submit it. We will go over the answers in class on Wednesday, October 12th.

This test was much more difficult for me than the Commonly Confused test.

The diagnostic test is way more difficult than the "commonly confused word" test. In most questions, all of the given choices in the test seem right. So, I just take a guess on them. I thought the first part of the test (agreement) is the most difficult, and the easiest is the punctuation part. After going over the test answer, I learned a lot and hopefully I can caught these errors in my own paper (which is harder than to catch someone else's).
