Test Best at West
Read with a purpose Check out the questions before reading the passage. Keep the questions in mind while reading the passage. Underline words and phrases that might be helpful with answering the questions.
Know types of questions Right There" Questions: The answer to these questions is right there in the passage. To find it, recall information from or refer back to one place in the passage. Example: "Who gave John the dog?" "Think and Search" Questions: Find the answer to these questions by using their memories or looking back at the passage. However, the answer is usually in more than one place. You will need to assemble information for the answer. Example: "What was the same about every dog in the story?" "Author and You" Questions: These questions are often the toughest because they can't be answered just by reading the passage. You need to use what you already know, plus what you learned from the passage, to answer. Example: "How did John probably feel when he found the dog?"
Understand test structure Answers about when and where the story takes place are often found at the beginning. Answers about a problem in the story are usually found in the middle. Answers about how the problem was resolved are frequently found at the end.
