Devin Miertschin EDP 310 4-20-09 Test Taking Module Activities Activity #3: Analyzing Your Test Strategies It is important that you write your answers on paper or type them in the boxes and print this page. You need to have a paper copy of your responses before you close this window. Write your responses to the following four questions. 1. What kinds of strategies do you use in preparing for tests? I start studying for a test by setting an overall goal on what kind of grade I want to make on the test. Then before I start the test I begin by going over my notes from the previous lectures and homework’s just to test myself to see if I can recall the information that I have learned. 2. Do you create a plan for preparing for and taking tests? What types of activities do you put in your plan? My plan depends on the nature of the exam. My strategies in preparing for the test differ from multiple choice tests and essay tests. For example, if it was a essay test I will go over main ideas of the lectures and homework’s so I can write them on the test. I if is multiply choice I will study vocabulary and little details because multiply choice are usually trick in there wording, thus it is key to understand the terminology for that class.

Devin Miertschin EDP 310 4-20-09 3. While taking a test, are there certain strategies that you use and do these differ depending on the type of test (e.g., multiple-choice versus essay exams)? When I am taking a multiple choice exam I tend to weed out the answers one by one until I get the best answer for that question. If I am taking an essay exam, I usually make mini- outlines for each short answer to make sure that I answer the question efficiently and effiecently. 4. When your graded test is returned, do you use certain strategies for learning from your mistakes to improve your performance on the next test? I usually take the test and go over it just so I can get a better understanding of the questions that I got wrong. Also if there is a final for the class I can easily recall the information and end up dominate the final test. For me if the same questions are are the final I will remember them and get them right the second test allow with the questions I already knew. Activity #4: Preparing Before The Test It is important that you write your answers on paper or type them in the boxes and print this page. You need to have a paper copy of your responses before you close this window.

Devin Miertschin EDP 310 4-20-09 1 . Do you budget your time wisely during the weeks before an exam? No I do not think that I budget my time wisely because I think I know all the materials for each of my tests and my grades do not reflect my efforts to budget my time. I think that if I spend more time on managing my time I will have more free time and more time to study and get better grades in all my classes. 2. Do you read material for each class before attending the lecture?
