10 Tips For Success On Reading Tests

  1. Carefully read all test directions.
  2. Look over the questions first, then read the passage, so you’ll be reading with a purpose.
  3. Use context clues to help you figure out words you don’t understand.
  4. Pay attention to the order of events. Look for words such as first,
    next, then, and later.
  5. Watch for absolute words that can change meaning, such as all, always, never, not, and only.
  6. Underline key words that tell what happened and why.
  7. Find evidence in the passage that supports your answer choice.
  8. Review all of the possible answers seems correct, choose the one that best answers the questions.
  9. For multiple choice questions, if more than one answer seems correct, choose the one that best answers the question.
  10. Be sure to write neatly, and check your answers if you have time.
