Tips For Better Test Taking

  • Test Taking

    - read directions carefully

    - look over test before you start

    - answer questions in a strategic order

True/False Tests

  • Every part of the sentence must be true

  • Pay close attention to negatives, qualifiers, and long sentences

True/False Tests

  • Negatives

    - If the question contains negatives, such as "no, not, cannot" drop the negative and read what remains.

    - Decide whether that sentence is true or false.

    - If it is true, its opposite, or negative, is usually false.

True/False Tests

  • Qualifiers

    - words that restrict or open up general statements. Examples are "sometimes, often, frequently, ordinarily, generally"

    - These words make more modest claims, are more likely to reflect reality, and usually indicate "true" answers.

True/False Tests

  • Long Sentences

    - Pay attention to the "truth" of each phrase in the sentence.

    - If one part of the sentence is false, it usually indicates a "false" answer


Multiple choice tests l.jpg

Multiple Choice Tests

  • Get an overview of test by skimming quickly

  • Answer the easiest questions first

  • Answer the harder questions last

  • On a “standardized” test (such as the SAT) make sure to answer all questions no matter if you know the answer or not. On those kinds of tests you get a fraction of a point for each question answered.

    -Eliminate obvious wrong answers first

    - Don't guess if you are penalized for guessing
