Analyzing Test Questions

When taking a test, we want to have a plan of attack. Beyond mastering content knowledge, we need sound strategies to break down the question stems and multiple choice answers. Previewing the question stems and titles will provide a purpose for reading which will increase reading speed and comprehension.

Analyzing test questions will also keep our brains active during a lengthy test. Circling ideas, writing brief explanations, underlining key ideas, and crossing out possible answers will help keep the brain engaged and actively seeking the correct answers. Let's keep our heads in the game with Analyzing Test Questions.

Literacy Standards In Action

We've mapped our literacy lessons and reading, speaking, and writing skills to state standards, Common Core, and NGSS. The standards are "the what" to teach. Our lessons are "the how" to meet the expectations defined by the standards. Click on the links below to view our quick reference table that maps standards to literacy lessons.

Read closely to determine what the text says explicitly and to make logical inferences from it; and cite specific evidence when writing or speaking to support conclusions drawn from the text.
