Tips for Test Taking

1. Listen closely to directions from your teacher. Carefully read all directions on the test before you begin.
2. On some tests, you might choose from several answers. (multiple-choice) If you don't know the answer, cross out the ones you know are wrong. Carefully think about the correct answer. If you're not sure, make a logical guess.
3. Read true/false statements carefully. If any part of the statement is not true, then the answer is false.
4. Answer the questions you know first; save the hardest for last.
5. Mark questions you need need to come back to later, using a star or some other kind of symbol.
6. Use all time allowed. Re-read the directions and check over your answers. There are no bonus points for turning in your test first.
