“Quiz yourself” techniques for studying
Quizzing your child in advance of a formal exam is one of the best ways to help him determine his grasp of the concepts and his preparedness for the exam. In lieu of having an adult available, however, your child can also take a more independent approach to test-prep by employing “quiz yourself” techniques. These methods can include using flashcards, using an application like Quizlet.com to take a mock-test, or using a K-W-L chart to test his knowledge and determine where he needs continued focus and practice. “Quiz yourself” methods allow your child to take pride in his self-sufficiency and progress, while also strengthening his mastery of the material and his confidence.
