Tackling Test Stress Tip 15: Have Some Strategies

It’s March Madness, so I have filled out my brackets and watched them completely fall apart! In years past, my strategy was to consider my choices, look for who seemed most obvious to win, then go with the team I wanted to win if it were a tough choice. This is actually a pretty good start to a strategy for students to apply to test taking.

See, students need to read every answer before they choose one. Then they should answer the obvious questions.
If they aren’t sure of the answer, they should rule out the choices they know are wrong, then pick the best answer that’s left.

That’s a lot like my bracketology in years past, which is why I typically have Duke to win it all. After being burned so many times, this year I resorted to cheating by copying most of the brackets from “experts”… you know what happened, right? Yup… Duke is still in it, and Kansas lost. That’ll teach me to change strategies!
