Y3K Tutor In Your Home’s Test Taking Strategies #9:  Reading Tests

Most of the standardized reading tests have a long essay to read and a bunch of questions to answer.  One test-taking trick is to read the questions before reading the essay.  Then as you read the essay, the answer will stand out once you get to that point in the story.

If there is no penalty for wrong answers such as PARCC, MCAS, school test and ACT, ALWAYS guess if you do not know the answer.  NEVER leave an answer blank.  The chances of receiving credit when guessing the answer may be as low as 5% - 20%.  However if a student leaves a question blank, they have a guaranteed 0% chance of receiving credit.  Guess when it is to your advantage.

If the answer does not stand out, try the elimination method.  On a separate sheet of paper write down the letters, A B C D E to coincide with the letters of the multiple choice question.  Then read over the potential answers.  On your paper, cross out the letters of the answers that do not make any sense.  At this point you will have eliminated all accept for the correct answer or have two choices remaining.  Choosing one of the remaining two will give you 50/50 odds in getting the answer correct.
