About the Test Taking Module

Test Taking

Content Contact: Meg Loewen 


Test Taking IconTests are a reality for every student in college. Unfortunately, even if a student has done well in their term assignments and studied hard for the upcoming test, they may still struggle to be successful on a test.

There a number of reasons for this: (1) the test environment is unique; (2) components to a test (i.e. structure, length, point value or types of questions) vary drastically from one test to the next; and (3) test anxiety may impede a student’s ability to show what they know. College students need test-taking strategies to manage these challenges and move beyond them to accurately display their knowledge and skillset.
