Take the End-of-Grade Tests Seriously!

  • What you put on your answer sheet reflects how hard you have worked this year.

  • Let it reflect a positive picture.

  • Use breathing techniques to calm yourself if you get anxious.


Remain focused
Remain Focused!

  • The End-of-Grade tests aren’t easy, but don’t let yourself be distracted by anything that prevents you from doing your best.

  • Remember that you control the outcome of your test results.


Time is important
Time is Important!

  • Use the time that you are given so that you can perform your best.

  • Keep track of how much time you have left.

  • If you finish early, go back over your test.

  • Remember that your test reflects your abilities and you want a true reflection of your abilities.


Know what to expect
Know what to expect…!

  • Know that you will experience some easy questions on the tests and some that are not so easy.

  • When you come to a question which you find difficult, use your test taking skills that you have been practicing with your teachers to figure out the best possible answer.


Try to answer all the test questions
Try to answer all the test questions!

  • When you come to a difficult question, don’t spend too much time trying to figure it out.

  • Wait until you’ve finished the easy questions.

  • Then go back and work on the hard ones in the time you have left.


Slash that trash
SLASH THAT TRASH!

  • Get rid of unimportant sentences or information in test questions.

  • Get rid of answer choices that you know are not correct-Try to narrow to 50/50.

  • Some answer choices are different by just one word.

  • Look for definite words like “always” and “never”. These are usually NOT the answer.


Don t give up when you come to a difficult question
Don’t give up when you come to a difficult question!

  • It’s best to make a good guess at the answer.

  • Remember…if you don’t answer the question, then it is automatically scored as incorrect. Any answer will give you a 25% chance.


Use good judgment
Use Good Judgment!

  • Be sure that the answer you have chosen actually answers the question you have been asked.

  • Take the time to make sure.


Don t over analyze
Don’t Over Analyze

  • Don’t read more into a question than is actually there.

  • Double check to be sure that you aren’t adding information on your own to the question.

  • Also, be sure to read all of the choices before making a selection.

  • Visualize what the question is asking you.


Use the materials you are allowed to use during testing
Use the materials you are allowed to use during testing!

  • If you are given a calculator, formulas, protractor, or scrap paper, use them.

  • Remember that they are there so that you can do your best possible job.

  • If you need more paper or another pencil, raise your hand.


Check it out
CHECK IT OUT!

  • Check after every 5 answers to make sure that your question number matches your answer number.

  • Write your final answer to the left of the choices in your test booklet so that if you misalign you can easily find your error.

  • Make sure that you are bubbling answers in the correct section of the test.

READING/SCIENCE …LET’S BEGIN!

  • Read the questions before you read the text, that way, you’ll know what to look for as you read the passage.

  • Look for clues to answers in other questions.

  • Read all footnotes.

  • CONSIDER key words, but don’t rely on them completely. Make sure that you are answering the question that is being asked. Conceptual understanding yields correct answers; not key word tricks.

  • Illustrate the concepts if necessary.

  • Visualize the question that is being asked.

  • Notice definitions set off by commas.

  • Read for context clues to understand vocabulary or any unfamiliar word.

Reading/Science Strategies!

  • The best test takers often refer back to a selection, a map, or a diagram to be sure to answer the question correctly.

  • It is not a sign of weakness to look back in the selection. It is a sign of intelligence.

  • Don’t just rely on memory. Rely on strategies and techniques.


Math let s begin
MATH…LET’S BEGIN!

  • Read each question carefully to assure that you are answering the question being asked and not the one that you think is being asked.

  • CONSIDER key words, but don’t rely on them completely. Make sure that you are answering the question that is being asked. Conceptual understanding yields correct answers; not key word tricks.
