A Conceptual Model for Promoting Study Skills and Test-Taking Techniques among Secondary School Students: Curricular, Instructional/Guidance, and Assessment Perspectives.
Guedry-Hymel, Linda; Hymel, Glenn M.
This paper develops a conceptual model involving curricular, instructional/guidance, and assessment perspectives on the promotion of study skills and test-taking techniques among secondary school students. From the curricular standpoint, consideration is given to a recommended range of topical coverage and a diversified array of printed/mediated resources based largely on the hm (Harvard-Milton Academy) study skills series published by the National Association of Secondary School Principals. A survey of suggested instructional/guidance options for promoting study skills and test-taking techniques extends from integrating such instruction with curricular offerings across content areas to the employment of instructional strategies from which students may infer and eventually develop effective study skills. Finally, consideration is given to criterion-referenced and norm-referenced tests that might provide a basis for determining student progress as well as program effectiveness. Appendices include: (1) recommended curricular content for promoting study skills and test-taking techniques; (2) a three-page bibliography of recommended curricular resources, including both printed and audiovisual materials; and (3) a description of the model, including the names of two suitable tests--Effective Study Test: High School Level, and Survey of Study Habits and Attitudes.
