Reflection: Unit Exams Day 1: Unit 1 Assessment for Short Story Fiction - Section 2: Building Knowledge


Reading each question carefully is important because my students need to understand what each question asks. Some questions will require them to go through several steps to find the correct or best answer, while others can be answered more quickly.

Answering the easy questions first is just a good test taking strategy. I tell them to answer the easy questions and skip the questions they find difficult. After answering all of the easy questions they go back and answer the more difficult questions.

When I remind them to be precise in circling the multiple choice answers  I'm asking them to check to be sure that the letter they want to circle is clearly known.  

I found that even after reminding them of these test taking strategies a few students left a few answers blank or circle two answers. The majority of the students followed these tips.
