Tests 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.

Each section of the Test Taking module presents the content in presentation slides, using the online program H5P. Within these slides, students work through various test-taking strategies, reflect on their own experiences, and check their understanding with built-in interactive questions. Other resources used in these modules include LinkedIn Learning videos, YouTube videos, links to helpful websites, and downloadable PDF documents for future student use.
