Test Taking Strategies...Consistency is the Key!

In order to provide consistent instruction on test strategies across our grade levels and classes, the School Improvement Team agreed to utilize the "UNWRAP" strategies for reading tests and "RULES" strategy for math.  These strategies represent acronyms to help students remember the steps to follow when testing. 

Each of these strategies encourages students to take their time, attend to all the crucial details and prove or check that they have selected the best answer.  These strategies will be provided to teachers to use in class, make anchor charts, and send home with students.  The strategies will be provided to all classes, K-5, so teachers can help all students learn procedures and vocabulary important to good testing practices.  

U - Underline the title and turn it into a question 

N - Number the paragraphs

W - Walk through the questions and answer choices

R - Read the passage as many times as necessary (2, maybe 3 times)

A - Answer the questions

P - Prove your answers

 

R - Read the math story or problem

U - Underline the units and questions

L - Locate key numbers and math action words

E - Evaluate and plan your strategy

S - Solve and check

We welcome you to partner with us at home while assisting your children with their homework and projects!
