									How to Study for Tests

  Making Better Grades
Recognition tests require students to
 examine a group of items or choices
 and select the quick answer.
 Because the correct answer is
 presented within a list of distracters,
 recall can be prodded.
Structured recall requires the student to
 recall the answer to a question
 without a visual prompt. Recall is
 heavy on memory load.

    According to Thurlow, et al., “scheduling
      accommodation are changes in when
                  testing occurs.”

   Reasons for a scheduling change include the
    effects of medication or for reducing frustration.
   Too many tests scheduled on one day.
   Skipping a day between tests for preparation.
   Reduction of test anxiety.
   Changing the test schedule so the student can be
    in smaller testing sessions.
