Test-Taking Skills and Preparation

Remember that exam you took in Sociology? We're going to look at those grades today!

  • Take some time to look over your test. Don't just look at the grade.
    • Is your grade better, worse, or about the same as what you expected?
    • What specific items did you miss? Why those and not others?
    • How did you do on the writing portion?
  • Next we'll discuss test-taking skills and preparation for exams.
    • What did you do to prepare for this exam?
    • What can you do to improve your preparation for next time?
    • Is the test what you expected? How does it compare to other tests you've taken?
    • What is it like for you to take a test?
    • What test-taking strategies did you use for this exam? What worked? What didn't?
    • How can you improve your test-taking skills for the next exam?
