These are just some of the factors that could affect the response to this question. ESSAY EXAMS, I feel so rushed while taking essay exams How do I avoid this. Possible strategies, 1 You probably will feel quite rushed Many exams you take are meant to be speeded tests to see how.
well you can work within a time limit, 2 Many classes especially history will give the questions to you a few days before the test There is a. reason for this It is important to practice composing an answer to those questions before the test At the. very least compose an outline In a typical class period there is not enough time to always brainstorm. thorough answers and finish the test, 3 Essay exams tend to be broad questions As you review your notes look for broad themes in them. rather than focusing on details unless your instructor specifically tells you otherwise This strategy will. help you predict potential questions, 4 Give yourself a time limit for each question so that you don t devote too much time to any one part of.

I have problems when the entire exam depends on only one or two questions. Possible strategies, When an essay counts for a large portion of your grade don t see it as one big question Instead break the. essay down into smaller more manageable portions to answer. Test Taking Strategies Identifying Patterns from Past Exams. Most times like us all instructors are predictable creatures of habit Instructors will typically construct. each of their exams in the same fashion The trick to increasing your success on your next exam is to. identify the patterns used by the instructor for constructing the test from If you are able to determine. where exam material is being extracted from you are a much more focused successful and proficient. exam taker After you take your first exam with an instructor you can focus your studying on the most. important resources and avoid spending too much time on material that won t be on the exam. STEP 1 WRITE DOWN EVERYTHING, To protect the integrity of exams instructors don t always hand back exams They will most likely let you.
view the test if you come to their office to view the materials However immediately after an exam you. probably can recall most of the material on the exam Believe it or not immediately following the exam is. when you will be able to help make the next exam you take be a success. Immediately after the exam write down everything you can remember about it. What questions were asked on the exam write down as many questions as you can remember. What did you know well, What did you struggle with. STEP 2 WHERE DID THE ANSWERS COME FROM, For Step 2 you will want to find the answers for each of the test questions you identified during Step 1. Answers to the test questions may be pulled from a number of resources your text book lecture power. point homework etc introduced by your instructor Now you want to work on identifying patterns the. following questions will help you with this process. What resources book lecture Power Point homework was your test based on. Were questions pulled from, o Bolded Vocabulary, o Headings. o Summaries, o End of Chapter Reviews, Do you remember hearing the information in class but it wasn t in your notes. If a test question was based on lecture materials do you recall how much time the instructor spent. lecturing on that topic in class, Power Point, Was the power point presented as a stand alone document or was it part of a lecture.
Was the power point available outside of a lecture accessible through Blackboard or some other. Were there exam questions similar to homework problems assignments. Some assignments are not mandated but suggested would those materials have given you a better. understanding of your exam questions, Test Taking Strategies Identifying Patterns from Past Exams. Study Guide, Did the study guide if one was provided give you specific topics or general ideas to study. Were there topics not on the study guide that appeared on the exam. Were you able to find all the answers to your test questions. It is critical that you meet with your instructor to understand what resource was used to formulate. the question Instructors provide their office hours on their syllabus this is probably the best time. to meet and discuss your question, STEP 3 IDENTIFYING PATTERNS. Do you think your instructor pulled equally from all resources OR are they selecting more heavily on. certain resources, What did you know well Were those questions pulled from a specific resource. What did you struggle with Were those questions pulled from a specific resource. Were there questions that you thought you knew the right answer to but ended up getting wrong Do you. know why this happened If no seek help from your instructor to gain a better understanding. Were there other patterns you identified, Test Taking Strategies Strategies for Different Types of Test Questions.
Multiple Choice Tests, Carefully read the directions Some tests might want you to choose all the correct answers. Read each question thoroughly before looking at your choices. Come up with the answer in your head before looking at the possible answers this way the choices. given on the test won t throw you off or trick you. Be sure to read all the answers before selecting the correct one There may be two that are similar but. only one is right, Don t read anything in or out of the question Make sure you restrict your response only to the topic. at hand For example if you had a PSY 120 question about a student having problems getting. motivated stick to the description of the problem Don t infer reasons go with what was stated in. the question, Break the question into smaller parts Sometimes long questions are hard to keep up with. Read slowly sentence by sentence and make sure you understand each part rather than focusing on. the question as a whole It may help to cover part of the stem or some of the options with your hand. so you can focus better, Underline key words and phrases in the question. Pay special attention to words that could throw you off i e which of the following is not. Eliminate answers you know aren t right, Incorrect sentences almost always contain words such as always never all none and every.
Correct sentences almost always contain words such as often most rarely may sometimes be can. occasionally result in and are often, Choose all of the above when two or more choices are definitely correct However only one. response has to be wrong for this choice to be incorrect. Watch the meaning of sentences containing double negatives Cross out both negatives and then. answer the question, A positive choice is more likely to be true than a negative one. Usually the correct answer is the choice with the most information or inclusive. When you don t know the correct response compare each option with the stem and analyze how each. is different One response may have something that others do not have. Responses that are more precise or technical are more likely to be correct However responses using. technical terms not mentioned in the material studied are probably incorrect. If two options are identical they are both wrong unless there is a choice which includes both options. Examine opposites carefully one is definitely incorrect and one is likely to be correct. Explain answers in the margins especially when you feel like there are two best answers. Many times the longest or most inclusive answer is the correct one. When absolutely guessing select the middle responses e g B or C. True False Tests, Answer these questions quickly, Look for qualifiers All only never and always mostly are false Generally often usually and. sometimes are almost always true, If any part of the question is false then the whole statement is false. Most true false tests contain more true answers than false answers When in doubt guess true You. have more than a 50 chance of being right, Negatives are confusing If the question contains negatives like no not cannot circle the negative.
and read the sentence that remains Decide whether that sentence is true or false If it is true the. opposite or negative is usually false, Every part of a true statement must be true If anyone part of the sentence is false the whole sentence. is false despite many other true statements, Test Taking Strategies Strategies for Different Types of Test Questions. Essay Tests, Read the essay questions, If you have a choice of answering 2 3 essay questions decide which ones you are going to answer. Read the questions carefully and do everything that it asks you to do some essay questions contain. more than one part, Budget your time and begin to plan. Outline or diagram the main points you want to cover. Write out examples sources and quotes you want to use to support your essay. Start with a thesis statement or idea that explains what you will be covering in your essay. Use the 5 paragraph method, Introduction what will be covered in the essay.
Body three supporting claims paragraphs use examples quotes sources to support. Conclusion short and to the point, Write legibly Organization clear thinking and good writing are important So is neatness. Save time at the end so you can reread and revise your essay. Keep your eye on the time Make sure you re not spending too much time on one answer at the. expense of others, If you run out of time jot down the last few ideas in point form Your teacher will be able to see. where you were going with your answer especially if you used an outline before you began. Fill in the Blank Short Answer Tests, These questions often ask for definitions or short descriptions. Similar to essay questions, Over learn the material learn the material backwards and forwards so you can answer questions as. fast as you can write, Look for grammatical hints For example a sentence that begins with an indicates that the word.
starts with a vowel, Use the best word or phrase you can think of. Use flashcards writing the key terms dates and concepts on the front and the definition event and. explanations on the back, Try to anticipate questions that will be asked on the test and prepare for them Usually what your. instructor emphasizes in class will be on the test. Try not to leave an answer blank Show your work write down your thoughts even if you don t get. the exact answer partial credit is usually awarded. If you don t know the answer come back to it after you finish the rest of the test and make an. important resources and avoid spending too much time on material that won t be on the exam STEP 1 WRITE DOWN EVERYTHING To protect the integrity of exams instructors don t always hand back exams They will most likely let you view the test if you come to their office to view the materials However immediately after an exam you
