Types of Tests OBJECTIVE TESTS General Information Objective tests are not necessarily easier  than essay tests.  A well-made objective test  can be very challenging. Objective test questions can be written in  such a way that every word must be read  carefully and interpreted accurately if they  are to be answered correctly.

Objective Tests: TIPS FOR TAKING OBJECTIVE TESTS Be certain you understand the test questions. Answer questions based on what you know  or understand. When in doubt about a correct answer, give  the answer you believe is intended by the  person who wrote the question.

Objective Tests: ANSWER THE EASY QUESTIONS FIRST Allows you to answer all the questions you  know if time runs out before you are able to  complete the test. You may find the answer to the question you do  not know when you read other parts of the test. You will build up test-taking confidence by  answering questions you know at the beginning  of the test-taking session.

Objective Tests: Answer all the questions on an objective  test unless there is a penalty for guessing. Mark Answers clearly. Check your answers carefully. Do not be concerned about other test  takers.

True / False Tests: Answer these quickly. Assume statements are true unless you know they are  false. Read carefully. If any part of a true/false statement is false, the  entire statement is false. EXAMPLE        George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, and Benjamin  Franklin were U.S. Presidents. Washington and Lincoln were Presidents, but Franklin wasn’t.
