Grade 7 Quiz Evaluating Arguments in Texts – RI.7.8

The standard CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RI.7.8 emphasizes the ability to critically assess the strength and validity of arguments presented in texts. This entails tracing the line of reasoning, evaluating the claims made, and determining the relevance and adequacy of the supporting evidence. The objective is for students to discern well-supported arguments from those that might be lacking in logical consistency or sufficient evidence.
