Using Test- Taking Strategies
Transcript of Using Test- Taking Strategies
By: Kylie Leach, Jen Beasley, Delnoah Calhoun, and Mitchell Lovett
How to use test taking strategies:
Step 1: Get off to a good start. You need to make sure that you have everything that you need for the test. Relax. As soon as you get the test, write down everything you remember on the back or at the top of the page.
Plan your time wisely.
Look through all the questions and answer the questions you for sure know the answer to.
If you have any doubts, come back to the question later. The answers might come to you.
If the answer is a multiple choice, cover the choices with your hand. Then, come up with the answer in your head and if you remove your hand and the answer is there, it is most likely correct. If not, use the process of elimination and get rid of the ones you know are not true.
Plan out what your going to do when you study. Listen to music when your studying to calm your nerves and relax.
Look for key words in True/ False questions such as: "always", "never", "every", "seldom", "all", and "none" If these words are in the question, the answer is usually false. Statements with "usually", "often", "sometimes", "most", and "many" are usually true.
Know how to approach essay questions.
Start with the easiest one. Brainstorm ideas before you answer.
write legibly. Research shows that an answer easier to read gets a higher grade.
Use evidence support your points.
Read over to make corrections.
If you don't know what write what you do know.

If you don't know the answer, write whatever you do know, because partial credit is always better than no credit at all.
Be prepared for open book tests, locate stuff quickly. You can do this by preparing before by highlighting and underlining stuff you might think is important. Also, make sure you leave time to check your answers. Once you get your test back, double check to make sure the teacher graded correctly
