Writing midterms and exams

Writing tests

Italian Trulli

It is show time. You have a quiz, test, or exam.

You have studied (good), perhaps crammed (bad), did an all-nighter (very bad), and have poured many cups of caffeine into your blood system (out of your mind levels). If you crammed, did an all-nighter, and drank lots of espresso, you are likely to be less successful.

You take a deep breath and when the instructor or exam proctor says start, your heart misses a beat, pulse starts to race, and you turn the booklet over or turn to the first page. What do you do?

Writing tests is a skill that is developed through university. Use these tips as a start,you will eventually figure out what strategies work best for you.
