Title: EOG Strategies!


1
EOG Strategies!
  • Take your time and do your best
  • I know that you can achieve success!

2
BE PREPARED
  • Eat a well-balanced meal the night before the
    test.
  • Make sure all clothes and school materials are
    prepared and ready to go.
  • Go to bed earlier to allow more time to fall
    asleep.
  • Refrain from disagreements that might change your
    attention focus.
  • Eat a well-balanced breakfast the morning of the
    test. Try to include protein like bacon or
    sausage.
  • Have a least 2 sharpened 2 pencils.

3
Think Positively!
  • Believe that you will do well on the End-of-Grade
    Tests.
  • Have confidence in your own abilities.
  • Set a goal and try to BEAT it!

4
Persevere!
  • Dont give up!
  • Use the time you are given to do your best
    possible job.
  • Remember that it takes a great student to keep
    going, but that you are that great student.
  • Dont crawl or rush through a test.
  • Steady Eddie is the rule of thumb.

5
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.

6
Remain Focused!
  • The End-of-Grade tests arent easy, but dont let
    yourself be distracted by anything that prevents
    you from doing your best.
  • Remember that you control the outcome of your
    test results.

7
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.

8
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.

9
Try to answer all the test questions!
  • When you come to a difficult question, dont
    spend too much time trying to figure it out.
  • Wait until youve finished the easy questions.
  • Then go back and work on the hard ones in the
    time you have left.

10
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.

11
Dont give up when you come to a difficult
question!
  • Its best to make a good guess at the answer.
  • Rememberif you dont answer the question, then
    it is automatically scored as incorrect. Any
    answer will give you a 25 chance.

12
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.

13
Dont Over Analyze
  • Dont read more into a question than is actually
    there.
  • Double check to be sure that you arent 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.

14
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.

15
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.

16
READING/SCIENCE LETS BEGIN!
  • Read the questions before you read the text, that
    way, youll know what to look for as you read the
    passage.
  • Look for clues to answers in other questions.

17
Reading/Science Strategies!
  • Utilize reading guides like THIEVES, RELAX or
    RUNNERS.
  • Read and study EVERYTHING!!! (maps, graphs,
    charts, tables, illustration/pictures, diagrams,
    and especially captions.)
  • Read all footnotes.

18
Reading/Science Strategies!
  • CONSIDER key words, but dont 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.

19
Reading/Science Strategies!
  • Pay close attention to bold or italicized words.
  • Notice definitions set off by commas.
  • Read for context clues to understand vocabulary
    or any unfamiliar word.
  • If you dont know how to pronounce a proper noun
    such as Qyieemah, then call it Q, but say it
    consistently.

20
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.
  • Dont just rely on memory. Rely on strategies
    and techniques.

21
MATHLETS 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 dont 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.

22
MATH STRATEGIES
  • Work out every single problem.
  • Draw pictures to help you.
  • Read and draw out sentence-by-sentence to make
    sure that you dont miss any steps.

23
MATH STRATEGIES
  • Make sure that you copy the problem correctly or
    you will solve it incorrectly.
  • Line up numbers by place value to compute.
  • If your answer doesnt match any of the choices,
    try again.

24
MATH STRATEGIES
  • Use strategies that you have been taught.
  • Work backwards.
  • Make a table or chart.
  • Make a list.
  • Look for patterns.
  • Estimate the answer to help you eliminate wrong
    answers.

25
MATH STRATEGIES
  • On the calculator active portion, use the
    calculator even if just for checking behind
    yourself.
  • If all else fails, guess and check/plug and chug.
  • Evaluate the reasonableness of the answer.

26
Dont be afraid to WRITE in the EOG test booklet!
  • It may seem strange to write in it, but it is OK.
  • You can underline key words that will help you
    answer questions.
  • You can even use a highlighter.
  • Just dont get carried away and mark up you
    answer sheet!

27
Proofread your test after you have finished!
  • If you have time, go back and look over your
    answers.
  • Change an answer only if you understand clearly
    why you are changing it.
  • Ignore what others are doing.
  • Erase any stray marks.
  • Make sure each circle is bubbled in neatly.

THE END IS IN SIGHTHANG IN THERE!
