Active-Passive Voice - Post Test


To see how well you have learned active-passive voice do the POST TEST below. There is no answer key for the POST TEST.  Instead, you should have your responses checked by the Writing Support Program office.

POST TEST DIRECTIONS:  Change each passive voice sentence into the active voice.  If the passive voice sentence contains no doer of the action, make one up for your answer sentence.

You must print out a copy of this page to complete the Post Test. Make your corrections right on the paper. Then bring your completed Post Test to the Writing Support Program office for evaluation and review.
