One of the best ways ot prepare students for standardized reading tests is to teach them the different types of questions so that they will have a plan on how to correctly answer the question.
The QAR strategy does just that!
Teaching my students the types of questions and requiring that they mentally or verbally identify the type of questions has enabled my students to have greater success on our in class reading assessments.
Students also feel empowered when they know where they can look or what they have to do in order to correctly answer the question.
I truly recommend that all teachers train their students in this type of higher level thinking to better equip them with test taking strategies.
