Testing Tune-Up...A Guide to Peak Performance.
Detroit Public Schools, MI. Dept. of Evaluation and Testing.
Students' test scores are influenced by their subject matter knowledge, their physical and emotional health, and their skill in the mechanics of test taking. Designed for use in the Detroit (Michigan) Public Schools, this document focuses on improving skills in the mechanics of test taking. The first section overviews strategies for administrators, test coordinators, teachers, students, and parents for before, during, and after a test. The remaining six sections, identified as levels A-F, contain handouts and practice exercises to be used, as appropriate, with students in any grade. Topics covered include: choosing answers that make sense; trying all parts of a test; and following directions. Answer keys for the practice exercises are provided at the end of each section. It is not intended that students work through the entire set of exercises at one time, rather, the exercises should be used throughout the school year in a manner that allows for review and practice.
