Below you can take the two ePIRLS tasks–“Mars” and “Elizabeth Blackwell (the first woman doctor)”–as they were presented to students. As you work through each task, your answers are recorded. When you have finished you can compare your answers to the scoring guide to see how you did! The “Directions” for the assessment are also provided. Students had 40 minutes to take each task–this demonstration, however, is not timed.
