    Jail the Detail

    Highlight, underline, or circle the details in the questions!

    This helps you focus on exactly what the question is.

    Example: Find the number that is not even.

    Extra! Extra! Read All About It!


    Read the directions, questions and texts carefully!

    Reread if you are confused or if you need to find an answer.


    Be Smart With Charts & Zap the Map!


    Maps give you information you need to answer questions.

    Dont ignore it! Zap the map!

    Charts give you information you need to answer questions.

    Dont ignore it! Be smart and use the chart!

    When you have completed the test, go back and check your answers. Make sure that you didnt leave any answers unmarked or you will not have the chance to get it right! Most importantly, don't give up and give the test your best! Taking your test twice will help you succeed!

    Be a Whiz With the Grid!


    A machine grades your tests. If it isnt bubbled just right. . . YIKES!

    You wont get credit for your hard work.



    Plug It In, Plug It In!

    Once you have chosen your answer, plug it in and make sure it makes sense.

    Example: If the question is 100 - ? = 60 and you think the answer is 40. Plug it in and see if you are right!

    100 - ? = 40

    Be Slick and Predict!

    Read the question carefully. Predict what the answer could be before you read the choices!

    This will help you pick the correct answer.
