Teaching Test-Taking Strategies.
Wilson, Lucy R.
A seminar was offered to improve the understanding of tests as they are used in academic and employment decisions, and to assist participants in improving their scores on standardized tests through increased understanding of test-taking strategies. The long- and short-range implications of training students in the techniques of test-taking are discussed. Such seminars may be of some advantage to students, but benefits are often temporary at best. A more appropriate and valuable approach may be to produce alternative assessment procedures and to develop more culturally relevant assessment systems. (Author/KA)
