The tips are things teachers and parents sometimes take for granted and think that every student thinks about or knows about. If a student adopts even just a few strategic approaches they may see an improvement in their results.
The tip sheet can be handed out to students prior to a test or exam. The sheet can also be used at parent teacher meetings to help develop strategies for students who are struggling with poor evaluation results. In the classroom, teachers can take each point and elaborate on it in relation to their own course or subject area.
The tips are not subject specific and can be used with a wide range of learners. The tip on mnemonics, for example, can lead to creating memory methods that tie into areas of study and course material. To extend on this tip, students can write their own mnemonic for a segment of material as a self directed and individual way to review concepts for an upcoming test.
