The Test Preparation Strategy For Bloom's Taxonomy

770 Words 4 Pages
The test preparation strategy that worked best for me was Bloom’s Taxonomy. The first thing I did before reading chapters 3 and 4 was to review it. I went through both chapters and counted how many pages each chapters was. I also looked for any boded words or vocabulary words that stood out to me and made should to highlight them so I can go back later and look up the word and define it in my own words so I can have a better understanding of it. What I did next was read the text and made a couple of annotations to sentences that stood out to me that I thought would be important or useful for when I’m writing my questions. After reading both the chapters and annotating I started to create question, while thinking of the question I went

I would usually just look over the material the night of an exam and pray for the best. There was no usual reviewing or studying going on, I solely relied on my memory to help me throughout the test but that never really seemed to work out. After learning this new strategy I’m more confident and ready to take test and quizzes because I actually feel like I actually understand the material and I have a study guide that I created to look over I feel that I forgot something or misunderstood a topic. I can use Bloom’s taxonomy for couple of my other courses such as; ENG 102, CAHC 211, or UNIV 101. I could use my understanding of reviewing and writing questions for my English class and ask my professor any question I had while reading story or learning new materials. That concept can be used for both my CAHC and UNIV course because reviewing and asking questions can be useful before having a test so I can know what is actually going …show more content…

If I was still questionable after reading the section then I would try to reread it and even after that I would put a legend on that sections and make sure to go back and ask a few questions from that particular section. For almost any class I can be able to use Bloom’s taxonomy because the main purpose of it is to have a better understanding of the material before a test and it can be used in English class, writing classes, other classes within a student’s major. It is just a great way to study and to review something that was once unfamiliar. I would be able to use this type of strategy in the future much more quickly because now I know what I’m looking for and what key words, phrases, or sentence I should keep an eye out for. The one change I would make throughout this new experience was to add one more step to it and it would be to use memorization just how it is used in Connell notes. The questions should be on one side and the answers with explanations should be on the other. I feel that this new strategy will be more effective in the future and help me though a lot of rough
