Grammar for the test:
- I expect you to have watched the comma video on the home page of this website, and to be able to use commas according to the rules in the video. You should be able to fix sentences with comma errors. On the test, I will assume that you know what I am talking about when I refer to an "independent clause," a "dependent clause," or a "subordinate clause." I will also assume that you are familiar with, and can identify, conjunctions and other parts of speech. If you cannot do this and/or are unfamiliar with any of these terms, this will become part of the information you need to study for this test. See me for help if you need it.
