Teaching Students to Be Testwise: A Handbook for Teachers Who Administer or Construct Tests, Grades K-12.
Montgomery County Board of Education, Rockville, MD.
This handbook for teachers of kindergarten through grade twelve was developed to assist those who administer or construct tests. The publication was written in response to a Montgomery County Public Schools citizens' advisory committee recommendation that reflected concern about the need to improve students' test-taking skills. The handbook discusses test strategies for teachers, including creation of an environment conducive to administering standardized tests and to construction and use of teacher-made tests. The second part of the handbook discusses strategies for helping students to become test-wise. An annotated bibliography contains instructional resources for teachers, resources for students, professional resources, and videotapes. (DWH)
