It’s raining tests…all different types of tests! Essay, math, reading comprehension, the SAT, the ACT or any state assessment mandated by No Child Left Behind—it’s no wonder that students sometimes feel as if they’re drowning in a sea of assessment! Test-Taking Strategies for Students provides learners with straightforward strategies to help them become confident, effective test-takers. These programs show students how to navigate through both standardized and teacher-made tests by helping them recognize the variety of test questions they’ll encounter and then modeling different strategies that they can use to aid in the selection of the correct answer.

Using humorous scenarios and a whole lot of fun, this seven-part series provides students with a full complement of test-taking tools that can be used in any test-taking situation.
