This document is intended to help teachers prepare students for the "exit exam of essential skills" required by the Student Accountability Standards enacted by the North Carolina State Board of Education. The strategies in this guide are based on two essential premises: following the North Carolina "Standard Course of Study" will help students be successful, and quality instruction will improve student achievement. The North Carolina High School Exit Exam (NCHSEE) focuses on skills across all disciplines. This document is divided into three sections based on the types of items students will encounter on the NCHSEE: scenarios, listening, and embedded error. Strategies include such practices as incorporating authentic tasks, becoming familiar with test structures, identifying main ideas and key words, or note taking. Some strategies may help students on more than one type of item. These instructional strategies are based on sound education practices and are applicable to all areas of the North Carolina Standard Course of Study as well as the NCHSEE. (SLD)
