Short answer tests

| Test taking | December 11, 2011

A teacher’s primary purpose
in giving a short-answer test is to test whether you have a foundation of knowing the material, usually factual.

Prepare for the test
Develop summary sheets of the course material information.
Focus on key words, events, vocabulary, concepts
Organize and categorize the material, then review

When taking the test

    • Respond directly to the question or directive
      Focus on keywords and ideas called for
      Eliminate those that do not directly address the information requested in the test item
    • Respond and write concise answers
      Connect key facts into short sentences according to the test instructions
    • If you can think of several answers
      let the instructor know. The instructor may give you a clue to the correct answer he/she’s looking for
    • A guess made with common sense
      could get you more test points than if you leave an answer blank
