First Step: Gather Information
The starting place for getting ready to take a test is gathering all of the information that needs to be learned. This can be: a study guide, class notes, worksheets, handouts and the end of a chapter in a textbook. Make sure all material needed for the test is gathered.
What is Leveling
The next step is to level the information according to the individual student’s knowledge. There is a simple A-B-C method to use. Mark all vocabulary and concepts with an A, B or C.
A means that the information is well known and does not need to be learned but only reviewed.
B means that the information is partially known and learning needs to happen.
C means that the information is not known at all and must be learned. It is important for the student to be honest when making these marks.
The next step is to start with the C’s. Count how many C’s there are and then put them on a calendar to know when to learn them.
Do the same thing with the B’s.
A’S should be reviewed two days prior to the test.
All learning should be put on a calendar to know when to learn the information.
