Y3K Tutor In Your Home’s Test Taking Strategies #11: Timed Test – First Do The Easy Ones
Some students go in sequential order of the test and get caught up on a question. They spend extra time on that one question and then run out of time. They end up not answering the last few questions due to lack of time. Not anymore!
The trick to defeating a timed test is to work out of order. Answer the easy questions you know. Skip the hard questions or questions that will take a long time to answer. Then after you have answered all the questions you can, go back and spend the rest of your time on the challenging ones. This way a student will earn a higher test score for answering more correct answers.
Y3K Tutor In Your Home’s Test Taking Strategies #5: Play The Odds
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.
Y3K Tutor In Your Home’s Test Taking Strategies #4: Prepare The Mind And Body
The night before a test, make sure your student gets plenty of sleep. The mind needs to be rested before the big day. The morning of the test, make sure your student eats a good healthy breakfast to keep the mind charged and body full of energy.
Y3K Tutor In Your Home’s Test Taking Strategies #3: Don’t Change Your Answer
The odds are that a student’s first answer is usually correct. Often students go back and change a right answer into a wrong answer! Unless you are absolutely positive that your first answer is definitely wrong, leave it alone.
Y3K Tutor In Your Home’s Test Taking Strategies #2: Multiple Choice Questions – Read All
Read all the choices before deciding on the correct answer. Often there is a wrong answer that appears right or is 99% right but 1% wrong that is put in there to fool you. Students that are impulsive and do not read all the choices, tend to go for these wrong answers.
Y3K Tutor In Your Home’s Test Taking Strategies #1: Multiple Choice Questions – Elimination Method
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.
