The answers are not provided to encourage pupils to rely on context clues only. Teachers may treat each topic with the whole class, in small groups or individually. Both formats can be given to the children to complete, with a lengthy interval between each. Teachers may also take into account the ability level of each pupil; giving cloze set one to the pupils needing more guidance and cloze set two to the more able pupils.
Answers for both formats are provided.
