Title: Strategies for Taking Standardized Tests


1
  • Strategies for Taking Standardized Tests

2
Twas the Night Before Testing
  • Go to bed on time.
  • (get at least 8 hours of sleep)
  • Put a few number 2 pencils with erasers in your
    backpack.
  • Solve family/friend problems before the testing
    date.
  • Talk to your parents about any concerns that you
    might have about the test.

3
The Morning of Testing
  • Eat a good breakfast.
  • Think of what you will do to relax after you get
    home from school.
  • Think Positive!

4
Multiple Choice Questions
  • Read the question and all answer choices before
    marking anything.

5
Multiple Choice Questions
  • Do not change your answers unless you are very
    uncertain about your first answer choice.
  • Answer every question-no answer counts as a wrong
    answer. Make the most intelligent guess you can.

6
Pace Yourself, Dont Rush
  • Dont spend too much time on any one question. Do
    your best and then move on.
  • Answer the easiest questions first, but be sure
    to go back to those questions you skipped.
  • Dont worry if others finish before you. Focus
    on the test in front of you.

7
The Process of Elimination
  • After you have been through all of the questions
    once, go back and find questions you have some
    knowledge about and eliminate choices that you
    know are incorrect and cross them out.

8
The Process of Elimination
  • If you can eliminate two wrong answers, your
    chance of choosing the right answer is greater.

9
Answering Questions
  • Don't guess blindly, but if you have time to
    think about the best answer choice, make it!

10
Skip, Return, Check
  • If you finish early, check to make sure you have
    answered all questions.

11
Key Words
  • Find key words or phrases in the question that
    will help you choose the correct answer.

12
Are we communicating?
  • Make sure you understand what the question is
    asking.
  • Be sure you are responding to the question that
    is being asked.

13
Math Computation
  • When using scratch paper on a math test, double
    check to make sure that you have copied the
    problem correctly from the test booklet!

14
Math Computation
  • Line up place value correctly on your scratch
    paper (thousands, hundreds, tens, ones) or the
    answer will be incorrect.

15
Math Computation
  • If your answer does not match one of the choices,
    reread the problem, recopy the numbers, and try
    solving it again.

16
A Matter of Time
  • If any time remains, spend it on those questions
    about which you know nothing or almost nothing.
  • As you go back through, do not change all
    answers.
  • Remember Your first guess is usually right.

17
Its About Time
  • Dont spend too much time rewriting or obsessing
    about neatness.
  • Remember you can get extra time so dont rush!
    You have 4 hours total to take the math EOG.

18
The Death Grip
  • If your arm tires during testing it is probably
    due to the grip that you have on your pencil.
  • Relax the grip and give those muscles a break.
  • Do not do arm exercises during testing as this
    disturbs others.

19
Information about the EOG/EOC
  • You will take the calculator inactive and active
    on the same day.
  • After you finish the inactive section check it
    over to make sure you have answered and bubbled
    in all questions.

20
Information about the EOG/EOC
  • Once you start the active section you cannot go
    back to the inactive section. If you go back and
    look at questions or change any answers it will
    be a misadministration!
  • Gridded response questions are on the inactive
    section.

Final Tips
  • Fill in bubbles fully, write neatly, and erase
    stray marks.
  • Double-check the question number in your test
    booklet against the answer sheet every few
    questions to be sure you are bubbling the correct
    problem.

25
Thank you, Mr. Know-it-all!
  • Remember it's okay not to know everything
    unlike class tests, these tests will have some
    questions designed to challenge the limits of
    your knowledge.

26
Calculators
  • No one can help you with a calculator question or
    issue during the EOG.
  • If your calculator is not doing what you
    want-clear it and try again 2nd-0 7 1 2.
  • If your calculator doesnt work-raise your hand
    and you can get a new one.

27
Good Luck!
  • Relax and dont stress! You are prepared and I
    know you will do well!
