Parts of Speech

In this section, you’ll “diagram” each sentence by correctly

identifying the part of speech of each of the words. This 

illustrates your understanding of the parts of speech and

their appropriate placement in sentence structure. 

Example: The boy hit the ball.  

The (definite article) boy (subject) hit (past tense verb) 

the (definite article) ball (direct object).

Please write the identified parts of speech on the lines

beneath each sentence.

1. Mother gave me a card for my birthday. 



2. The new mail carrier finally arrived. 



3. How many players are on a team?




Part 2: Types of Sentences 

In this section, you’ll identify what type of sentence each

example is. You don’t need to explain as we did in Examples 1

and 2. Just identify whether each sentence is complex, an

exclamation, declarative, or interrogative. 

Example 1: While Annie stayed home and sulked, Jimmy

went to the movies.   Complex

This is a complex sentence, because it has one or more 

independent clauses joined by one or more dependent clauses.

“While Annie stayed home and sulked” is a dependent clause

because it’s an incomplete thought. “Jimmy went to the

movies” is an independent clause because it’s a complete 

sentence that has a subject, a verb, and an object.English Composition Challenge Assessment 3

Example 2: I like this.   Declarative

This is a declarative sentence, because it’s simply making 

a statement.

Please write your answers in the spaces provided at the

end of each sentence.

1. Tim likes soup, so Mary bought tomatoes. _______________

2. Oh no!  _______________

3. Do you want to play in the garden?  _______________

4. In the story, the author told how useful a sled can be.


5. She plays the piano.  _______________

6. I love you!  _______________

7. My brother baked a cake last night.  _______________

8. The car broke down, but a rescue van arrived within

minutes.  _______________

9. If you leave late, take a cab home.  _______________

10. What did you name your new puppy?  _______________


Part 3: Word Choice 

Which word is correct? In this section, you’ll apply your

knowledge of troublesome words by making choices in the

following sentences. You don’t need to explain your choice.

Read the sentence out loud to yourself several times using

the different options. Once you’ve decided which word is

correct, circle your choice. 

Example: I can’t go any (farther, further) up this hill. 

The correct choice is farther. Farther means physical advancement in distance, while further denotes advancement to a

greater degree, as in time.4 English Composition Challenge Assessment

Please circle the correct choice.

1. I think (there, their, they’re) son is the quarterback of 

the team.

9. She performed (good, well) on the balance beam.

10. These colors (complement, compliment) each other well.


Part 4: Proofreading 

What’s wrong with this passage? In this section, you’ll proofread a passage looking for grammar, punctuation, and spelling

errors. It may help to read the passage aloud, to more easily

determine any mistakes. You don’t need to tell us how many

corrections you make in each sentence.

Example: One day him and i got up and decided to go to the

beach for the day.

Edited: One day, he and I got up and decided to go to the

beach for the day.

There were three errors in this sentence.English Composition Challenge Assessment 5
