Note: Unless prior notice is given, tests over literary terms will be matching. Students should be aware, though, that all of the definitions on the test will not match word-for-word with the definitions given on the literary terms list. If students learn the meaning of each term rather than matching the term with a key word in the definition, then they should have no problems.
