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
True/False Tests
  • Every part of the sentence must be true
  • Pay close attention to negatives, qualifiers, and long sentences
true false tests5
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 tests6
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 tests7
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
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.
