Using Vocabulary Practice and Tests 

The Design of Vocabulary Practice and Tests
Vocabulary instruction works best in an interactive, student-centered model. Instead of providing students with alphabetized lists of words to memorize, Vocabulary Practice and Tests presents words in groups, in the context of meaningful subject matter, and then provides assessments based on these same meaningful groups. Each book is divided into one major section of vocabulary lessons (practice), followed by another major section of formative and summative assessments on the lessons (tests). 

Each Vocabulary Practice and Tests book is based on a list of three hundred words. Because students learn and remember new vocabulary best when words are introduced in small groups, each book divides the word list into three broad con-text areas of one hundred words each. For example, in Grade 6, the three one-hundred-word groups are titled "Amazing Nature," "People and Places," and "Ecology and Environment." These three groupings are further separated into clusters of either ten or twenty words. 

The exercises in Vocabulary Practice and Tests are designed to reflect the latest testing practices. Making New Words Your Own, Understanding New Words and Their Uses, and Read-ing New Words in Context in Grades 6-8 reflect the kinds of items students will encounter in the Metropolitan Achieve-ment Tests, the Stanford Achievement Test, and the Compre-hensive Test of Basic Skills. Reading New Words in Context in Grades 9-12 has been influenced by the SAT. Connecting New Words and Patterns is designed to introduce students to the kinds of analogies they may also encounter on other tests. 

Vocabulary Practice and Tests: Text Organization 
Making New Words Your Own introduces students to each vocabulary word through Wordbusting and Context Clues items. Ten vocabulary words are introduced in each of the thirty lessons in Making New Words Your Own. In Word-busting, students figure out the meaning of a new word by examining the context in which it is used, analyzing the structure of the word, determining what the word sounds like, and looking up its definition. In Context Clues, students read the vocabulary word in another context and match the word to its correct definition. In Grades 6-8, students also identify synonyms and antonyms in Like Meanings and Opposite Meanings. In Grades 9-12, students work Sentence Completion items, using the vocabulary words in context. 

Understanding New Words and Their Uses in Grades 6-8 includes exercises in Multimeaning and Word Analysis. In the Multimeaning exercise, students compare sentences that use different meanings of the same word. In Word Analysis, students identify a word's meaning by using prefixes, suffixes, and word origins. 

Each of the fifteen lessons in Connecting New Words and Patterns allows students to build logic skills through practice with analogies. In Grades 6-8, students identify the relation-ship of the pair of words in the stem and in the answer options. They then match the appropriate relationships. In Grades 9-12, students choose the pair of words that expresses the same relationship as the stem words. 

In Reading New Words in Context, the vocabulary words are used in fifteen reading passages. Students answer twenty multiple-choice items in each lesson, using the passage to determine the meaning of each vocabulary word. In Grades 9-12, students also provide synonyms for each of the twenty words in a lesson by referring to the passage.

Vocabulary Tests 
The tests in Vocabulary Practice and Tests assess students' mastery of the words presented in the book's vocabulary lessons, using both formative and summative tests. 

Each formative test asks students to choose synonyms for the ten vocabulary words that correspond to one lesson in Making New Words Your Own, the first section of lessons in Vocabulary Practice and Tests. 

The three comprehensive summative tests are modeled on state and national tests and use the same subject matter covered in the accompanying vocabulary lessons. Each test covers one hundred words used in ten lessons of Making New Words Your Own. 

Vocabulary Practice and Tests : Answer Keys 
The answers for every item in the vocabulary lessons for each grade level are included in a single book, Vocabulary Practice and Tests Answer Keys. The answers for the exercises in Connecting New Words and Patterns also contain an ex-planation of the correct analogy. 

The answers for each test in each grade level are also included in Vocabulary Practice and Tests Answer Keys. The point scoring for each test is included in the directions for the test. The score for each test totals 100 points.
