This set includes BOTH the elementary version and the secondary version.

The two versions are similar, but they are not the same. There are differences in the answer choices, plus two of the Personalities are different. In the elementary version, we have The Hero and The Bestie. In the secondary, the comparable personalities are The Activist and The Amigue. The two versions feature similar questions, but the answer choices are not the same.

If you only want the elementary version (grades 3-6), click here.

If you only want the secondary version (grades 6-12), click here.
