Getting Ready for the Test

Kaplan’s new whitepaper, “Effective Test Readiness,” outlines six key findings that guide effective test prep:

* Prioritize the content students need to know for exam success

* Understand and meet individual student learning needs

* Provide repeated practice under pressure in test-like conditions

* Appropriately integrate text, visuals, animations, narration and behavioral activities to support cognitive processing

* Harness working memory for optimal learning and critical thinking skills

* Develop key cognitive strategies that students can apply to the classroom and beyond and provide students with strategies that match the demands of the test
