Pronoun Case - Post Test


To see how well you have learned to use correct pronoun case,  complete the POST TEST below.  There is no answer key for the POST TEST.  Instead, you should have your response checked by the Writing Support Program office.

If the results of your POST TEST indicate that you need more work in some area of this chapter, the Writing Support Program office will direct you to additional material.  If you do well on the POST TEST, the Writing Support Program office will tell you that you have satisfactorily completed the unit. 

You must print out a copy of this original page to complete the Post Test. Make your corrections right on the printout. Then bring your completed Post Test to the Writing Support Program office for evaluation and review so that you can take the final test in the office.
