"ENHANCING OUR PRACTICE"

TEST TAKING TIPS

Multiple Choice - Multiple Choice Questions are questions that give you about 3 to 4 options to choose from. Usually the answer is in the options, if not, then it will be stated, e.g. (none of the above). When answering multiple choice questions, you should do the following:


1. Read the questions at least 2 times.
2. Look for key words in the questions.
3. Look at the options and use them to make connections.
4. Follow the instructions.
5. Bubble the correct answer/s clearly.
6. Bold-faced, CAPITALIZED, italics and underlined words and phrases you must pay close attention to.
7. Try to come up with the answer before looking at the options.


Short Answer – In short answer questions, you must write a word or a phrase to respond to the question.

1. Make sure you write what the question asks you.
2. Look for key instructional words. For example: state, list, name, indentify or write, etc.
3. Bold-faced, CAPITALIZED, italics and underlined words and phrases you must pay close attention to.
4. Pay attention to the number of points for each question; the question may want you to give more than one answer.


Structured Questions – Structured questions are questions that are usually connected and have two parts. Your knowledge and understanding is really tested here because you have to explain something.

1. Answer in a complete sentence.
2. Bold-faced, CAPITALIZED, italics and underlined words and phrases you must pay close attention to.
3. The first part of a structured question might ask you for a direct answer and the second part will ask for an explanation or a reason for your answer. For example: Explain, Based on the information, Use the phrase)
4. Use context clues to help you to answer the questions.


Understanding Questions

Have you ever asked someone a question and the answer given did not match the question asked? For example, you asked whether the person wants vanilla or chocolate ice cream and the answer given was “yes” or “no”. So, which ice-cream does he/she want?


It is very important that before answering a question on your examination, you first understand what is being asked. Every question has a clue word that tells what type of information is needed in the answer. Knowing the meaning of a question clue word can help you understand the question correctly and provide the correct answer.


Study the list below of the different types of question clue words. Be sure to look for, circle, and think about the meaning of your question clue word BEFORE attempting to answer the question.
