Page 3: Multiple Choice and Short Answer (Open Response).

• Write several pieces for different purposes (news report, supported opinion, summary paragraph)

Page 4: Multiple Choice and Short Answer (Open Response).

• We know that all students are capable of passing the test, but need help and practice.

• Working on your ability to answer multiple-choice questions and short answer responses will help to make sure you pass.

Page 5: Multiple Choice and Short Answer (Open Response).

Multiple Choice Questions

There are different types. Sometimes you

1. find the answer right in the text.2. need to infer – that is, read between

the lines.3. extend beyond what is written in the

passage.

Page 6: Multiple Choice and Short Answer (Open Response).

Step One

• Before you attempt any of these, read the passage for basic understanding.

Page 7: Multiple Choice and Short Answer (Open Response).

Step Two

Read the first question.

Do you know the answer?

If yes, read through all the choices and make sure you select the the most correct answer. Do not choose the first correct answer you see.

Page 8: Multiple Choice and Short Answer (Open Response).

Step Three

If you do not know the answer right away:

- read the four choices- cross out obviously wrong answers- highlight key words in the question and scan the

text for those words to try to find the right answer

Be aware that some answers may seem correct, but there is only one best answer.

Page 9: Multiple Choice and Short Answer (Open Response).

Step Four

If you still cannot answer the question,

circle it and move on to the next question.

When you’ve tried all questions for this passage, go back to it.

Page 10: Multiple Choice and Short Answer (Open Response).

Repeat this four-step process with each question in the passage.

Page 11: Multiple Choice and Short Answer (Open Response).

• Now go back to any questions that you circled and left unanswered.

• If time permits, repeat the steps to answering multiple choice questions and review the passage.

• Always make a selection. Never leave an answer blank.

Page 12: Multiple Choice and Short Answer (Open Response).

TIP: One strategy (if you must guess) is to choose the answer with the most information.

TIP: Don’t keep changing your answer. Usually your first answer is correct, unless you misread the question.
