I Get Scared During A Test!!! What do you do?

Test Taking involves a group of skills that each student needs to learn based on how the individual’s brain works. The first part involves really knowing the material being tested. How did the student learn the material?

It is important for the student to really “know” the information. This means understanding it in his/her own words. It means do not memorize. When memorizing, the student is using someone else’s words which may have no true meaning for the student. When something is memorized and put into brain memory, it may not stay. It may not stay because the student really does not understand the words memorized. There is no true meaning for the student.

In a test if the student is asked to take the basic information and apply it to a different situation, the student who truly learned the material will be able to do this. The student who memorized the material will not be able to do this.
