When You Get the Test Back

By November 21, 2012

Follow me on:

What do you do with a test once it is returned to you with a grade? It's a good idea to do a quick analysis of your performance. Ask yourself a few questions:

  • Was there a certain type of question that caused problems for you?
  • Was your essay short on substance?
  • Was there a question that took you by surprise? Why?
  • Was there information that you didn't study?
  • What were your strengths?
  • What cost you points?

Look over the test to see if you can find a pattern, whether it reflects a problem or a strength in your test performance. If you do this several times, you'll learn a lot about improving your work.
